Civil War Confederate shell jacket. Condition is listed as used but this item was never worn in the field. Six pieces body with two pieces sleeve. All top stitching and buttonholes are hand done. Made from Charlie Childs excellent mixed grey kersey, english imported, wool, and lined in cotton muslim.
When many years ago I had the opportunity to see the collection of the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond I was struck by the poor quality of workmanship that was exhibited some of the depot produced enlisted garments. I remember thinking that a drunken monkey could have stitched them better.These items are finished to a better standard I hope! I had a question concerning the buttonholes so I posted these pictures. The nature of the wool and the lack of cordage in their construction makes them blend into the mixed wool.
