Battle of Atlanta. An extraordinary testament to the Confederate spirit and ingenuity. About 1 5/8" diameter, cast iron. With a shortage of standard foundry patterns to make the molds, these are each significantly out of round. Close examination shows that each was made using a beeswax pattern to form the mold cavity. The shapes are not random but clearly were made by rolling a wax ball in the hands to approximately spherical form. That process results in flatter faces conforming to the hand and is easily verified by duplication. Ex: Schindler’s Antiques, King St, Charleston, about 1975. Extremely rare.
