these folk-art targets display beautifully.

Antique Myriopticon, Panorama, Civil War Battle Scenes, Milton Bradley
Likely Milton Bradley, Roll Published by Currier and Ives, 152 Nassau Street, New York (1872-1874)
A historical panorama…unique view of the Civil War, a game, a history lesson, a home theater - SOLD
The 8" x 5" x 2" cardboard box with an open back and a viewing window cut into the front panel [like an Elizabethan
stage] decorated with brightly colored lithograph paper depicting a patriotic bunting, theater curtains, musicians and
two royal figures watching from the sides. It was suggested that a candle our lantern be used behind the box during
the show…likely the reason that so few of these are extant!
The box contains a roll of paper on which are printed, and brightly water colored, approximately twenty Civil War
battle scenes. The paper is mounted on two rollers having wooden knobs that are turned by hand, causing the
panorama to pass across the proscenium displaying selected events from the Civil War.
The first scene displayed is the firing on Fort Sumter by General Anderson and his men; the myriopticon ends with
a view of the burning and evacuation of Richmond by Confederate troops. Other images included the battle between
the Ironclads U.S. S. Monitor and C. S. S. Virginia, camp life, freed slaves and a sharpshooter among others.
Milton Bradley began manufacturing his myriopticon around 1866; pictures were copied from the pages of Harper’s
Weekly. The toy likely included admission tickets and perhaps a poster, advertising the performance, and a script.

round…no horse, driver, or tongue.
Additional Information: The cart is labeled "Cream Buttermilk, Alderney Milk, Grade A,
Laboratory Controlled & Tuberculin Tested, No. 76" Manufactured by Schoenhut for a
short period of time, this milk wagon was more than likely produced for the Alderney
Dairy Co. on special request. There were approximately nine different milk and bread
wagons manufactured by Schoenhut for various firms. Although a couple of different
models are pictured in their catalogs, most wagons were likely custom orders for
various dairy and bread companies. This version displays lettering on either side with a
large vignette of a cow in the pasture. Rare opening tailgate emblazoned with the word
“Milk” gave access to the crates of milk within. Included is a crate of milk with twelve
bottles. The Abbott family began bottling and selling milk from their Salem, New Jersey,
farm in 1876. The business, which expanded to multiple locations in Philadelphia
around the turn of the 20th century, soon added "Alderney" to the business name.
