A classic New England style canteen or rumlet as they were known in the early days, this keg type canteen measures approximately 2 3/4 inches in diameter about 5 inches in length and remains in fine untouched condition with that lovely rich color that comes to maple only with decades of natural age. It is constructed in typical fashion from a single section of hollowed out honey maple with white ash headshand fitted just right so as to swell to form a leak free seal once pressed into place in the maple body. While this simple swell to fit construction worked well when the maker was skilled, the vast majority eventually split from shrinkage and were cast aside. A classic personal utility properly dating from the American Colonial period with use through the Civil War era, this classic example is without means for sling attachment as is typical these little vessels as they were generally carried in travel in the owner’s hunting or ’possible bag’ as it was referred to in the early days or later in the Mexican and Civil War period in the knapsack or haversack. A popular item that could be entirely hand-made, at only a cost of time, maple ’swiglers’ as they were sometimes called, promoted many a friendship. (see: The COLLECTOR'S ILLUSTRATED ENCYCLOPEDIA of the AMERICAN REVOLUTION by Newmann & Kravic & Sylvia & O’Donnell’s CIVIL WAR CANTEENS)
