These canteens are functional, meaning that they hold water. The canteen is water tight due to the close fit of the wood and it's swelling from the water(no sealer is used)The raised spout is formed from the stave as was done prior to the Civil War(British pattern) The wooden hoops make it appropiate for use any time up to the early Civil War. Many of these canteens were imported from England by the Confederate Army until the Gardner pattern went into production.
