    Description

    Great example of this rare genre.

    Confederate Civil War Gardner's Pattern Cedar Wood Canteen with Wonderful Period Paint Decoration. 6.9" diameter, 2.5" thick, a slightly different size than normally encountered, but classic form with riveted iron bands and mortises for strap loops. The untouched paint decoration, which is 100% intact, is very similar in character to the canteen pictured on page 34, at top, in Sylvia & O'Donnell's Civil War canteen book. The scene depicts a cottage next to a stone bridge over a stream in a wooded setting, with mountains, painted blue/gray, in the background. There is clearly an artist's signature to the left of the bridge and below, which we are unable to make out, but certainly discernible and worthy of research. The sides of the canteen are painted black, and the reverse face gray. Turned wood spout with cork/wood stopper. Old hairline on the face and the spout but no loss and really negligible.
