This RARE, antique, union case with a photo inside. Case is in really nice condition except that it is apart at the seam - see photos. I believe the photograph is an ambrotype.
From his outfit I believe it is a Civil War Officer. He has what looks like a cappy and epaulettes which are highlighted with some sort of paint? As is his buttons, collar, hat insignia, etc.
Union case measures 3.34 by 3 inches. It is made of a very lightweight dark brown material. Velvet inside and fancy embossed Gold frame are in really nice condition. As usual, I show lots of photos for you so please view all photos for a true indication of the exact condition of this RARE, Civil War piece. If you choose First Class International I cannot track the package outside of the US (however you can) and it will not be insured.If vintage jewelry or Sterling Silver are your passion please mark me as one of your favorites and check back to see the wonderful pieces I list each week.
