One of those neat things we have had tucked away in our fifty plus year accumulation, this attractive little mother of pearl case measures approximately 3 ¾ X 2 5/8 inches X a mear 7/16 of an inch thick and remains in exceptionally nice original condition A popular personal item, such were frequently utilized in the period as a pocket carrying case for a friendship or sweetheart card or photo and his offering retains both just as it came to us form decades of trunk storage. Thanks to our insatiable curiosity, love of history and the modern technology of internet research, we have lately been able to fill in important blanks as to the background of our old Georgia antique sale find.
Housed in the little pocket case is a print decorated Forget Me Not card offering a finely penned presentation to William B. Tuck from Deborah D. Flint. On the back of the card in a different hand is the period ink inscription of E. B. Tuck who , turns out was the father of William. In the case with the card is a period trimmed to fit CDV mount holding the tintype portrait on an attractive young woman. With no further identification we can only assume based upon our best judgement that the lady is none other than Deborah. A search of available genealogical databases produced but a single William B. Tuck in the period and, low and behold, he was a Georgian! A more extensive look-see found William enlisting on March 3, 1862 as a Private of Capt. Ritch’s Cavalry - Co. B ‘Georgia Troopers’ – Cobb’s Georgia Legion Images of verifying muster rolls and other period documentation to include a letter in father E. B. Tuck’s hand are available with a search of the Fold3.com research database.) Per records found William B. Tuck enlisted for 3 years or war however his mustering out could not be found. His father’s letter indicates that William had died, fallen into it hands of the enemy and had been for some time a prisoner of the Yankees. (William’s father is writing to recover bounty money owed to his son.) As for Deborah Flint, we did find a period Flint family residing in the area but specifics eluded us and more research will be required. 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!
