Susat Civil War Antiques


    Confederate Cap Pouch   SOLD

    This cap pouch is solid and an attractive deep dark color.  It has a single wide strap on the back.  The latch tap is formed as part of the flap and has a break in the end at the finial hole.  There is a thin leather strip connecting the two ends together allowing the flap to be latched.  This suggests a period repair, but there is no way of knowing for sure.  The body is poorly formed and it was made with no inner flap.  The finial is brass and - as one  confederate collector calls it - a "Pine Tree" finial.  This is due to the straight tapered shape.  The leather and stitching is solid.  There are some cracks along the edge of the flap.
