Canfield & Brothers of Baltimore, Maryland, made this button for Virginia before the war. Despite an indentation on the reverse this button is beautiful. It is from the post-war shadow box collection of Richmond dentist Dr. Wray Wythe Davis., son of Dr. Hugh Wythe Davis, former Major and Asst. Surgeon to the 1st Virginia Infantry and Surgeon in Charge of the Soldier's Home Hospital in Richmond. In the years following the war Maj. Davis and his young son Wray collected relics. When Wray reached manhood he followed his father's footsteps in a medical career. Among his patients were many ex-Confederate soldiers, some of whom donated buttons from their uniforms to the collection. Young Dr. Davis displayed his Confederate plates and buttons in a shadow box in his dental office in Richmond into the 20th century.
Price: $300.00 USD (Sale Pending)
