Civil War soldier's Marbles in tin container (SOLD)

Out of Stock


Product Description

This is a great little piece and part of a large Civil War collection I acquired, it is a tin with marbles. It is the typical jappaned tin container of the times, measuring 2 ½” x 1 ½” x 1 ¼”. Inside are seven colored clay marbles of various sizes.

You have to remember that soldiers were mostly young men and playing marbles was one of their favorite pastimes. In my book “The Civil War Soldier – His Personal Items”, I go into more details about the games soldiers played (see pictures). It would go great with a display of a soldier’s personal effects.
