Full standing image of a militia musician posed between a table and chair.

The young clean-shaven subject wears a dark swallow-tail coat and white trousers with dark leg stripes on each side seam. The coat has a low light-colored collar with a star on each side that has been touched with gilt. Coat is single-breasted with horizontal rows of braid across the chest corresponding to each gilt button. The braid ends on each side in a Russian style knot. The shoulders of the coat have musician’s swallow’s nests similar to those worn by British military musicians in the 18th Century. The subject wears gauntlets on each hand obscuring the cuffs but just above the gauntlet edge on the left sleeve a pointed peak of white material is visible. At the subject’s waist is a white sash.

The soldier’s right hand is holding a triple looped horn upright on top of the table beside him. Next to the horn are two horse pistols with gilt butts. The subject’s left hand rests on the back of a chair on which his Dragoon style helmet with horse hair plume sits. Draped over the back of the chair is a pair of mounted holsters for the pistols lying on the table.

Image has excellent clarity and contrast and is very clean. Sparkling brass mat is decorated with scrollwork with crosshatched medallions on each corner. Brass frame is the usual scroll decoration.

Leather case is excellent. Exterior has crisp floral decoration with few tiny scuff marks and is very clean. Interior pillow is of red crushed felt with a flower urn at center of a scroll border.  [ad]
