1/4 Ambrotype Photo of Three Civil War Drummer Soldier Boys, 1860s
Original circa 1861 quarter-plate ruby ambrotype photo of three Civil War drummer boys in Zoauve style uniforms. The oldest boy is leaning on a rifle and a drum with his kepi and drumsticks is in the foreground. The boys' buttons and accents on their kepis and on the drum are painted gold. Condition notes: There is some surface deterioration - the ambro came to me with the. Mat on top, so the glass was resting directly on the image for who knows how long. So the surface has quite a few deterioration spots... However, the emulsion is stable and not actively flaking, safe behind glass, and will stay exactly as-is with no further deterioration. Leather of the case is worn but not too badly.
There is an old leather strip spine repair that has split. The item "1/4 Ambrotype Photo of Three Civil War Drummer Soldier Boys, 1860s" is in sale since Thursday, December 6, 2018.
