Missing its frame & case, this image features bearded officer in a standing, frontal pose.  Dressed to the nines, the soldier sports a plumed fore & aft chapeau, shell jacket with embroidered gilt-tinted collar & epaulettes, white gauntlets, gilt-buckled sword belt, white trousers, with knee high cavalry boots with tinted spurs. He holds before in both hands a militia sword in tinted gilt decorated scabbard with ivory handle & gilt eagle beak pommel. The central image is fairly crisp, with a wealth of detail, despite a light veneer of corrosion spotting. A highly unusual pre-war militia image.
