CDV AN ASPIRING NAPOLEON

$65.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: P14017

This Union infantry sergeant is posed in the classic pose of Napoleon with his right hand stuck into the lower lapel of his coat. The carpet of a photographer’s studio is visible at his feet, but the backdrop used is plain rather than painted and there is not a stick of furniture in sight. His cap shows some brass unit insignia and his regulation frock coat and trousers bear the chevrons and wide stripe of a sergeant. He may have had the photo taken to send home and with notice of a promotion. He is posed starkly, but has dressed up for the occasion with a necktie. He has the decided look, however, of someone who has taken on a new position and wonders what comes next. The card is in very good condition, with good clarity and tone. There is no backmark or tax stamp, indicating an early to mid-war date.  [SR]
