rarely surviving! 18th early 19th century - Deer Hide FLINTLOCK BOOT

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Seldom seen today save in advanced collections (see: Newman & Kravic's COLLECTOR'S ILLUSTRATED ENCYCLOPEDIA of the AMERICAN REVOLUTION) the lowly flintlock boot was a true personal item individually crafted from hide to fit over the a flintlock action offering protection from rain and snow. This rare period example was made from untanned deer hide with a natural bug shellac coating inside and out so as to maintain rigidity and improve water resistance. This rare relic of the past remains in unbelievably nice original condition, the inside surface even retaining sporadic remnants of deer hair imbedded in the shellac waterproofing. The boot measures approximately 11 inches in length and retains its period jute cord. A true rarity! Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
