19th century chained Iron Drinking Cup

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.

This heavy tinned iron drinking cup measures 5 inches across the mouth with a stout iron riveted handle with a permanently attached 4 foot chain of heavy die-struck iron links. Seldom surviving, likely due to the cumbersome chain in conventional use, these so called gang-cups were popularly utilized for drinking water for 19th century work gangs. With use by labor crews, and work gangs of all description their can be little doubt that such would have found a way from the New England logging camp to the Civil War military camp in the South. Classically mid-19th century in design and material, this sturdy drinking cup, chained to a water barrel, would afford a reliable drinking utensil to all without wandering away. . 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!
