Civil War Soldier's Art - Inventory Number: SCU 040
Intricately carved from a single piece of wood these items were often carved as prisoners of war and in camp, this example has a hospital/medical theme. Measuring 10” long x 1 ¾” wide, the carvings depicted include a pair of crutches, an invalid feeder, medical shears, cross, etc. Additionally a ball was whittled within a cage from the same solid piece! Neat piece of soldier's art and ingenuity.
