Original Zulu War Dutch Large Wood Canteen Recovered from Isandlwana by Trooper A. Adams - c.1879

Item Description

Original Item: One of a Kind. This is a truly amazing find, and would make an excellent research project. This is a HUGE wooden circular barrel-style Canteen, measuring 17" across and 5 1/2" deep. It is entirely hand made with two wrought iron hoops around the circumference and a very large "U" shaped carry handle, also of iron. One one side it bears a brass plaque stating:-


FRESHWATER CANTEEN
Recovered from
THE DUTCH WAGONS
After the Battle of
ISANDLWANA
TRPR. A. ADAMS
1879

In just lovely matured condition having come from an old Zulu War Collection in England. Just looking at this makes you imagine the noise of a Wagon Train passing by. Sadly it no longer is able to effectively hold water due to the wood shrinking.

Lovely, very unusual and ready to display.
