This was in my father's collection. It is old and original. It measures 3 3/4 inches tall by 3 1/4 inches high. It is a Civil War soldier wearing a medal of some sort. He is in full uniform holding weapons to the day.
The two pieces of the case have come apart so they are in two separate pieces. The frame of the portrait is very ornate and sparkling gold.
