SIXTH-PLATE TINTYPE OF A CONFEDERATE 1st SERGEANT

$750.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 2022-1044

Image is a waist-up view of an unidentified stern-faced 1st sergeant seated with one arm resting on a table and holding a small pocket testament in one hand.

The subject wears a light-colored slouch hat and a matching shell jacket with a high collar and cloth epaulettes. Each sleeve has what are believed to be black 1st sergeant’s chevrons. The stripes and lozenge are spaced further apart then is normally seen. All buttons are touched with gilt. Visible around his neck is a long thin chain or string which leads down to his lap, however, his hand hides whatever is attached to it. There is a watch key suspended from the fourth button hole which the photographer has painted with gold gilt. Perhaps there is a watch attached to the chain about his neck. He clearly holds a small pocket testament in one hand. A close look reveals a cross at center of the cover along with some other decoration.

The contrast and clarity of the image are good. Image comes with the usual decorative brass mat and stamped brass frame. The mat shows a little green discoloration along its edge while the frame has moderate surface dirt.

Full leather case with repaired hinge is in very nice condition. [ad] [ph:L]
