original! Pat. 1877 Wilkinson's Correct Charger - BLACK POWDER FUNNEL



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.

Best described here by our illustrations, this rarely found black powder cartridge charging funnel retains a good portion of its original label proclaiming to be WILKINSON’S CORRECT CHARGER for filling cartridges – Pat July 24, 1877. Nearly always among the missing if you are fortunate enough to find an original CORRECT charger, this all important companion piece is even less likely an acquisition. We have surmised that the frequency of separation of the funnel from the charger was likely due to independent use. Is it a total coincidence that the mouth of the funnel is just the appropriate size for powder dipper charging of the period .52 caliber Buffalo rifle cartridge, or was the precise size intended as a handy option? This example offers all the earmarks of period material and construction with a lap seamed, led soldered, tinned sheet iron body and copper .52 caliber spout. A rarely surviving remnant of the big bore buffalo hunting days, this offering will be of special interest to the antique cartridge and reloading enthusiast.
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!
