One I've never seen before....

One I've never seen before....

This little beauty came out of an old home site in Fluvanna county. I had never seen one before, and thought it might be for a child given it's construction. It's made of sheet brass and pretty thin brass at that. My friend Jack found some info on the net however, and turns out it was produced from around 1840 thru the 1860's. It was used by militia members strictly for ceremonial purposes, and was intended for a light sash. Check out this link for more info! See ya'll at DIV!!
