Civil War
Civil War era Dog Collar made of Engraved Plates and Linked Chains a Type Sometimes Confused with Slave Tags
c. 1850 to 1860 Civil War Era, Dog Collar made of Engraved Metal Plates and Chain Link Collar, Very Fine.
This high-quality Dog Identification Collar measures 24" in length and is one of the nicest such collars we have encountered. We have been contacted a number of times over the decades with this type of dog collar confused as being a Slave Collar when the name fit that thesis. One of the metal plates is engraved with the whimsical notation reading: "I am Tom Rorer's Dog Major... whose dog are you". The ends of the chain are joined by two matching plates that slip over each other, then are held in place by a slide. The heavy chains and long collar indicate that "Major" was a dog of substantial size. Normal light patina and wear from use, otherwise a superb display piece of the period.
