Indian Wars Period Tin Canteen by Wilson & Stellwagen Philadelphia, Pa
Item #: AA3211
This is a tin drum canteen made by Wilson & Stellwagen of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The firm of James Wilson and Henry Stellwagen was listed as dealers in military goods from 1868 - 1873. This canteen does not conform to the sizes associated with military used canteens of that time, either Civil War or post Civil War period. It measures 7" tall including the spout, and 6" wide. One side is embossed with WILSON & STELLWAGEN/PHILAD., while the other side is blank. The canteen was japanned black, and still retains the majority of the color. A cork stopper came with the canteen, and appears to be original to the canteen. All three sling guides are present and securely attached. A narrow 9/16" wide leather strap comes with the canteen. The leather is pretty fragile, but still in one piece. The seams are tight on this one, and it will probably still hold water. This would look good in a Scout or teamster display from the Indian Wars period.
