Civil War Soldier Eating Utensils


Recommended Posts

All,

nothing special but I just won these 3 CW eating Utensils.  The folding spoon is made by BW and Co.

The Metal fork/spoon/knife combo compact set is stamped -  "W.H.     Richards PATENT JULT 23, 1861 - BOSTON

My question is about the Wood handle fork and spoon that slide into each other (not the all metal ones)

It is stamped 2nd N.J. INF - any chance CW?

thx for your help in advance.

Mike

268th C.A.

the first & third I'd say are good Civil War period, the wooden pair not so sure if that's a repro or not. maybe some else will chime in...Nice I like them.

The wooden handled set may be old but I doubt very seriously the markings are original.  Fake markings are frequently used to "enhance" legitimate collectables, and mess gear wasn't normally marked.
