1 of 3 Union & Confederate 1/6th Plate Civil War Soldiers listed Tonight. 1/6th Plate Confederate Civil War Soldier Ambrotype.This is 1 of 3 Union & Confederate Civil War Soldier Photographs Listed Tonight that have been in our Personal Collection for the past decade or so. This is an Authentic 1/6th Plate Ambrotype Image featuring a Confederate Civil War Soldier Identified in Period Pencil writing on the inside of the case as P. 1862 while in the army. After a bit of research a P. Davis appears in the Civil War Soldiers & Sailors System as being from the 15th Texas Infantry which was Organized in the Spring of 1862 using the 1st Texas Infantry as its Nucleus. The 1st Texas infantry was in the Norfolk Virginia area in 1862 giving absolute credit to the period pencil writing in the case. This image has been in our Personal Collection and has been used for years as Our Logo for Southern Soldier Antiques. We are no longer using this Fellow for Advertising & are Ready to Release him back to the place in which we found him over a decade ago. He is Guaranteed to be an Authentic Period Image and would be a Welcome addition to any Collection & would easily make any Museum Proud. There is wear to the image but the Uniform, Face, Hat & Gun are clear as day!
It is Possible that the damage to the image at the bottom was intentional as His Belt Buckle would have Clearly Identified him as a Texas Confederate and perhaps this was frowned upon by someone later in life. It's awfully convenient that the damage didn't effect the Main portion of the Photo and hides all affiliation to the South. The following Links Should Help with Research. 1 of 50+ Estate Fresh Items Picked Weekly.
Displays fairly well with the bottom half of the image being worn from the back side. A dark cloth is not bringing the image back as it has been worn from the glass. Light wear around the edges but the face, uniform and pistol sticking out of his shirt are very crisp & clear. The pencil writing in the half of the case that is present is lightly faded but can easily be made out. 3 1/4" Tall 2 3/4" Across.
