$275.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1043-187

This is a 1/6 plate tintype photograph in a “Union” hard case. The thermoplastic case is in excellent condition. Two brass hinges and catch all in good order. Both halves of hard case match in size and brownish color. The gutta percha case features a raised scene of a successful hunter standing over a deer with mounted deer heads in each corner. On the interior, one side has pressed velvet lining and the other side a crystal-clear tintype under glass with usual mat and frame.

The two posed workers hold tools of their trade: hammer, square, dividers, and wrench. These men are dressed in clean work clothes with striped aprons. One man wears a straw hat.

Image is very clear.

An interesting photo of working men in a rare Union case.  [jet] [ph:L]
