Historically Significant Silver Mounted South Carolina Cane
Historically Significant Silver Mounted South Carolina Cane
Offered here is perhaps one of the most significant and historic relics we have had the pleasure to handle. It is not only of great importance to South Carolina history but to US history in general both military and political!

The physical description of the cane is as follows: It measures 37 inches in length. The top mount is sterling silver, and the bottom is brass/bronze with a grounding iron. The wooden shaft is 33 inches long and is 1 1/2 inches wide at the top and tapers to about 3/4 of an inch. It is a hard wood, possibly oak.

The ornate silver top cap is totally covered in decorative motifs and bears 2 inscriptions. The top inscription reads: " Hon. A.P. Butler from Col. Gladden 1849".

Excellent Confederate Naval Officer's 'Dolphin Head' Sword
Excellent Confederate Naval Officer's 'Dolphin Head' Sword
The exquisite sword shown here is known as the Dolphin Head, taking its name from the classic style and design of the pommel. This sword, made by Robert Mole & Sons, is a pattern made especially for Confederate Naval officers. Mole’s mark is stamped clearly into the spine. It was one of the few that ran through the blockade into Charleston, South Carolina and it is clearly stamped on the ricasso Courtney & Tennent Charleston, S.C.

It was during the War Between the States that Courtney & Tennent supplied buttons, militaria and swords of various patterns to the Confederate Navy. Courtney & Tennent did not manufacture arms; instead they purchased military supplies wholesale from England and resold them at retail in Charleston, South Carolina.
