We have a small quantity of mid 1800s vintage tallow soap acquired some years ago and are offering the individually wrapped personal size cakes individually for those who would enjoy having an example of the real thing to display with their collection of Civil War personal items. All original and period from decades of attic storage each cake comes wrapped in brown butcher paper secured with period twisted jute string. Pan made from tallow and wood ash lye, mixed together and allowed to cool before being cut into individual cakes measuring approximately 2 1/8 X 1 ¼ X 3/8 inches thick. A simple every day item seldom surviving and a wonderful complement to lay in with any personal grouping without spending a lot of money. Will go especially well with a shaving cup and brush! We have unwrapped one for illustration, yours will come as originally offered, wrapped and bound with natural twine. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques! :
