Revolutionary War Era Portable Whiskey Still
Revolutionary War Era Portable Whiskey Still found in an old collection in Ohio. These were placed in a wagon as the soldiers were on the march. Filled with the ingredients for whiskey, the rumbling of the wagon would help speed up fermentation. At the end of the day, the still would be placed over the fire and a serving of whiskey would be distilled. An example is publisehd in the Nuemann/Kravic Collector's Guide to the American Revolution. At some point in the past this example was unfortunately filled with a mixture of cement/plaster and used as a door stop. In untouched condition, this would be valued upwards of $500. 9 in. x 9 in. This example will still dispaly very well, but has been altered. Therefore, it is offered at much lower price to be placed in a nice camp display. Dark patina and oxidation. Seams visible. Fantastic display piece in spite of the alteration.
