NINTH-PLATE AMBROTYPE BELIEVED TO BE OF A VIRGINIA SOLDIER

$550.00

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 1138-1961

Waist-up view of a young soldier wearing a dark frockcoat with a high collar outlined in thick light-colored tape with a single three-piece button on each. The front of the coat has a single row of buttons running down the front. Folded over the subject’s left arm is a matching dark overcoat.

Contrast and clarity are good but the image has a spotty finish caused by oxidation on the emulsion. There is also a rub mark along the right side.

Image comes with a decorative brass mat and stamped brass frame in a half leather case.

From the collection of the late William A. Turner.  [ad][ph:L]
