I can be reached nearly anytime at email@example.com or call me 9894281009.
Civil War Field Desk. Love this Civil War field desk. It does need some refreshening and a good clean up. The surface is all original and has the original Spanish Brown painted surface. The latch that holds the desk closed should be replaced, a little wooden turn buckle would look great. Lid falls forward to reveal a lot of boxes and cubbies and a center drawer. There is a small hole on the top board, looks like a pine knot popped out. The desk has a very nice scrolled back. The desk measures 26 inches wide, 24 inches to the top of the scroll and about 12 inches deep.

1860’s Calico Dress, Hand Stitched-Civil War Era. Just love the fabric of this dress, a black and cream calico print, awesome. This lovely dress came from a private Michigan collection. The dress is completely hand stitched. It measures 25 inches from salvage to salvage. The sleeves have been patched and repatched and then were cut and hemmed. Pocket on one side. This dress still retains the “crunch” to the fabric, it has not been recently laundered. Black calico prints were popular during the Civil War era. Dresses of this caliber are difficult to find and quite popular with collectors. Notice all the gathering at the back of the dress. Certainly not perfect but beautiful and in very good condition. This is a wonderful piece of common threads, every day clothing from a bye gone era.
