CIVIL WAR DRUMMER IMAGE - PERIOD CDV COPY OF A TINTYPE

$195.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 1013-16

Often, but not always, period copies of images were made because the subject was either killed or died of wounds or disease. Making multiple paper copies of an already existing hard image was the easiest and cheapest way to give friends and family members a photograph to remember the deceased.

This wartime cdv is by EVANS & PRINCE of York, Pa. It shows a young drummer, probably in his late teens, posed with his drum by a pedestal on which some kind of sculpture stands. Visible around the subject is a line of dots in a scrolled pattern that matches the shape of a brass mat found on hard images such as tintypes and ambrotype. These telltale dots show that this cdv is a copy of a hard image.

The young drummer has his drum slung around his neck and his sticks poised ready for play. He wears a dark forage cap, frock coat and trousers. Attached to the shoulders of the coat are brass shoulder scales. The drum sling is dark with a light edge. No decoration is visible on the drum.

Image is clear but a bit dark in areas.

Mount edges have light surface dirt and upper corners are clipped.    [ad]
