Image shows two men seated at a cloth covered table. The man on the left wears a light-colored high crown hat with a matching light-colored suit jacket with matching trousers. Under the jacket is a white shirt with dark bowtie.

The gentleman seated at right wears a dark porkpie shaped hat with a wide brim and a dark suit jacket with trousers that are light. Under his jacket he wears a light-colored vest with a plunging collar, white shirt and a large dark bowtie.

Each of the men have a large cigar sticking out if their mouth. Their cheeks are lightly tinted red as is part of the tablecloth.

Image is clear with very good contrast. There is some discoloration around the edges. Also, scattered around the lower left portion of the image are several small dark spots of oxidation. These really do not hurt the composition of the image.

The ambrotype is held in a plain brass mat with a false bullion border. The whole is housed in a gutta-percha frame with a heavy scroll work decoration and an attached “O” ring at top for hanging on a wall. The frame meas. approx. 5.50 x 6.50 inches.  The gutta-percha is in excellent condition with no cracks or chips.  [AD]
