1860's CIVIL WAR 1/4 PLATE TINTYPE PHOTO OF UNION SOLDIER with AMERICAN FLAG
VERY rare and fantastic, 1860's Civil War Quarter Plate Tintype Photograph of an armed United States Army Soldier with rifle featuring a wonderful, camp scene backdrop with an American Flag!! This outstanding, period Tintype Photograph measures approx. 3 1/8" by 4 1/8" and is housed in what appears to be its original matt, binding and cover glass. The Tintype is a wonderful, full length portrait of a Civil War Union Soldier standing almost at attention with his left arm at his side and his right hand holding his rifle upright. He wears a kepi, an enlisted man's frock coat, a cartridge box and what appears to be an eagle breastplate along with what appears to be a rather large but unidentifiable belt plate. What makes this Image extra special is the American Flag that flies over the Civil War Field Camp that is illustrated on the fantastic photographer's backdrop!! Overall the Image is VERY attractive and strikingly Patriotic!! Neither the subject nor the photographer are identified in any way. This rare and wonderful, Civil War Tintype Portrait of an armed Union Army Soldier is in very good condition. The focus is sharp, the contrast strong and the tonality rich and warm although the Image is just a bit light overall.
The Tintype is well preserved with no bends and no major surface scratches, scuffing or significant damage of any kind however there are scattered blemishes to the emulsion as can be seen in the scans below. The surface is sound and stable with no crazing or flaking. Overall the Image is well preserved and displays beautifully! A very rare and original, 1860's Civil War Quarter Plate Tintype Photograph of an armed Union Army Soldier featuring a wonderful, camp scene backdrop with American Flag and a fantastic addition to any collection!
