1/4 Ambrotype Photo of Three Civil War Drummer Soldier Boys with Rifles & Drum
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 the cased image is totally safe to display and handle. Leather of the case is worn but not too badly. There is an old leather strip spine repair that has split.
