Civil War era SMOKING CAP

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.

A mark of the Victorian genteel , the mid-19th century smoking cap was an especially comforting accessory to many a socially minded officer of the more leisurely geared life of winter camp. A demonstration of individuality with a frequently rich gaudiness, the smoking cap, designed and stitched by loving hands, offered a most popular remembrance from home when shipped to the front. Examples of these highly prized 'camp' or smoking caps may be seen in the more advanced public and private collections with published illustrations appearing in both of Time Life’s Echoes of Glory volumes. This offering is of colorfully hand embroidered black silk with quilted silk lining. The cap is in excellent all original condition yet with the most minimal evidence of age and period use as testimony to originality. A wonderful all original example remaining in fine condition.
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!
