Confederate Cap Pouch
This is a delightfuly crude example of a confederate cap pouch. It has a lead finial and two waist belt loops. The construction and pieces of this box are quite crude. Both ears for the inner flap are present and different sizes. The body of the box is poorly formed and the waist belt loops are crudely cut out. The stitching is solid and tight and the leather is strong. I always though this had to be a unique example, but at one show I saw a match. Same crude thing, same two inner flap ears that were different sizes. Same crude waist belt loops. Seems somewhere in the south a shop was turning these out for the war effort.
