SIXTH PLATE TINTYPE OF FIREMAN & WOMAN IN “FIREMAN’S DUTY” UNION CASE

$250.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1043-276

Scarce image and case. Tintype shows a fireman, standing, with a woman seated next to him. The man is in fire company shirt with waist belt and holds a fireman's trumpet. The “trumpet” was used to communicate to firemen at distance, like a directed megaphone. Image is under glass with typical metallic mat and frame.

Image has several scratches in emulsion, including one on man’s face, but remains in overall good condition. Clear with good contrast.

The Union (hard) case is in excellent condition. No cracks or chips and with strong hinges and clasp. Velvet lined. Exterior has matching halves which feature various firefighting scenes. This case is called the “fireman’s duty” and was made by Littlefield, Parson’s & Company.

Perfect photo for collector’s or firemen.  [jet]
