Collection of six Civil War–era accouterments, including: a bone-handled fork and spoon set, the knife with a ‘Lamson & Goodnow’ maker mark and patent date of 1860; an unmarked ‘camp spoon’ with floral decorations at the top of the handle, often used for eating around the campfire; a scissors-like wick trimmer with patent date of 1864, used for candle maintenance; a wooden toothbrush handle with sixty tiny holes for bristles, now absent; and an unsmoked ‘torpedo-shaped’ rolled cigar, as often seen in Civil War photos. In overall very good to fine condition, with general expected wear. Accompanied by a wooden case.
