    Description

    CIVIL WAR ARTILLERY LIMBER CHEST GENERAL JOHN CLARK, NEW HAMPSHIRE. Regulation form and size, 42" x 22.25" (lid) x 17.25" high. Constructed of a combination of pine, walnut, and oak. Retains all of the original iron furniture and heavy sheet copper covering on lid. Provisions inside for four partitions on (yielding five rows) each side exactly 4" apart with a 1" central partition which divides the inside of the chest into two parts. Neatly stenciled on the upper left interior lid is "No. 2/ Genl John Clark/ Comy Genl State of/ New Hampshire/ 23 Portsmouth, N. H." Absolutely period and certainly worthy of research. An exceptionally nice example of this basic piece of Civil War artillery equipment in a wonderful state of preservation with interesting ID and loaded with character.

    Condition: Overall completely untouched. All original iron fittings have black patina with light to, in some spots, medium pitting. Copper lid also untouched with an overall green color mixing with age brown. Exterior of wood retains about 30% of the original gray paint. The balance, a heavily weathered dark gray. Some splinters, and one piece of molding missing from the interior central partition. Molding for ammunition partitions completely intact. Overall very tight and sound.
