TINTED SEATED VIEW OF A BEARDED UNION SOLDIER

$450.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1139-34

Very nice clean, clear tintype image of a seated Union soldier wearing a black Model 1858 dress hat with gold gilt crossed sabers or cannons. The gilt paint obstructs a clear view of the insignia and though the hat cord is tinted red for artillery, the insignia under the gilt paint looks more like sabers than cannons, it is hard too tell for sure. The subject also wears a sky-blue overcoat with the cape held closed by gold gilt buttons and at his waist is his black waistbelt with Pattern 1839 oval US plate perfectly outlined in gilt. The subject’s cheeks and lips have been touched with rose tint.

Clarity and contrast are excellent. Plate is very clean.

Brass mat has a military motif with US flags, bayonetted rifles, cannon and three-masted ship of the line. Stamped brass frame is also present.

Image is housed in a very nice union case with raised geometric decorations. The case is free from chips or cracks. [ad][ph:L]
