Civil War era traveling - Fire Starter Kit

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.

Measuring approximately 4 inches in length and about 1 inches wide, this little pocket or haversack size traveling fire starter is hand fashioned from tinned sheet iron with lead soldered lap seams. The cover offers a built in coal oil starting fluid reservoir with screw cap and the body retains its period content of Civil War vintage Portland sheet matches, a period hand dipped candle and the remains of an original PORTLAND STAR MATCH wrapper likely saved and included as quick catch aid. With clear evidence of the rigors of age with period use and carrying, this all original and as found Civil War vintage personal utility will lay in well with any quality period grouping.
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!
