Measuring a full 10 inches rim to rim this spun-brass basin remains in wonderful as found and all original condition retaining that attractive natural age patina that comes to this material with the decades. Bearing the scarce early manufacture marking, HIRAM W. HAYDEN WATERBURY CONN. PATENTED DEC. 16, 1851 (Hayden sold his patent to the Waterbury Brass Company almost immediately upon its issuance.) this basin will fit well in any quality, earlier through Civil War grouping, and will display especially well among original Civil War hospital and medical items.
Of interest to the collector / historian not familiar with patentee Hiram W. Hayden will be the knowledge that while working for what would later become Scovill Manufacturing he made what are believed, the first chased buttons, made in the United States. His Pat. 1851 method for the fabrication of brass kettles and seldom seen basins completely revolutionized the manufacture of sheet brass items. A prolific discoverer of ideas, among his patented inventions are designs for a breech-loading and a magazine rifle. Hiram W. Hayden was a leader in the development of the daguerreotype and was as well as a process of capturing photographs on paper. . 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!
