    Description

    Confederate Artillery Implements & Augusta Fuse Box. Certainly one of the finest groups of Confederate used artillery implements, including a fine Confederate manufactured artillery fuse box, marked "Augusta, Georgia Julius Darrow" in an oval stamp embossed on the flap. The leather is still nice and supple with an excellent patina.

    The implements as found within the box are; 1) a finely crafted lanyard that was used to set off the cannon blast, appearing different than the U.S. regulation lanyards, 2) Confederate manufactured friction primer that was used to spark the cannon's ignition, 3) a vent pouch that would have cleaned out the fuse hole of the cannon, 4) three shell fuses, two are wrapped, and 5) a long steel cylinder with brass ends used for holding the bursting charge for an Armstrong cannon. All of the implements are in exceptional condition having been stored within the fuse box.

    Included with the lot is a copy of the 2005, number two edition of North South Trader which featured the implements and Augusta box on the front cover of that issue and an article detailing the pieces and showing images of the factory that manufactured the box.
