THANKS FOR STOPPING BY AND CHECK OUT ALL OF OUR OTHER AUCTIONS! Measurements: Overall outer dimensions of the case are: 2 7/16" Wide X 3" Tall X 6/16 Thick This is a 1/9 Plate.
We are not collectors or experts so please be sure to see all of the photos and consider them a part of the description. This Ambortype photo is all original. In my opinion the photo is in nice condition with normal wear and the partial case is in not so good condition.
But amazing it exists especially considering the fact that this is from somewhere between 1860 and the early 1900's! Sharp Image with good tones and depth. The copper, inner frame is marked. HOOLMES BOOTH & HAYDENS SUPERFINE WATERBURY CONN. The image is of a Man with a bow tie and suit or uniform (more than likely a suit).
This is, from the information that we have. Promotions: 2nd Lieut 6/15/1861; Capt 4/21/1862; Major 12/31/1863. He was born in Henry County, VA on May 5, 1837. Jesse Enlisted on 6/8/1861 into Company A, 42. Virginia Regiment at Ridgeway as a Private and was promoted through the ranks up to a Major He was wounded at Gettysburg and Mine Run.He was hit by a minie ball that entered the left part of public crest that fractured the branch of the pelvic bone and the upper part of the femur. He died on 5/5/1865 at Petersburg, VA Hospital (Died of wounds and disease, jaundice). He 42nd Infantry Regiment, organized at Staunton, Virginia, in July, 1861, recruited its members in Henry, Floyd, Bedford, Campbell, Roanoke, Patrick, and Franklin counties. And in Jackson's Valley Campaign, the unit was assigned to J. Terry's Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia.
It was active in many conflicts from the Seven Days' Battles to Cold Harbour, then moved with Early to the Shenandoah Valley and was involved in the. This regiment reported 70 casualties at First Kernstown and totaled 750 effectives in May, 1862. It sustained no losses during the Seven Days' Battles but had many at. There were 62 disabled at Second Manassas, 26 at. Of the 265 engaged at.
Twenty-one percent were killed, wounded, or missing. Only 1 officer and 44 men surrendered. The field officers were Colonels Jesse S.
Withers; Lieutenant Colonels Daniel A. Langhorne, William Martin, and Samuel H.Adams, Henry Lane, and Jesse M. All of the other tintypes, Ambrotypes, and Daguerreotypes came from his estate that we will be listing were mainly military pictures and soldiers. The image on the glass does appear to have normal wear and tear (actually probably a little better than normal in my opinion). The glass itself does not show any cracks and only a few small fleabites on the inside edge under the copper as well as minor scuffs which is normal. There is the Glass photo with some kind of painted on black background right on the back of the glass, then another piece of glass, then a thin copper ornate frame by Hoolmes Booth & Haydons, then this is all held together by another thin copper frame that wraps around to the back. This whole unit is then held into the outer case just by the snug fit. The outer black case has a really ornate and pretty design to it.
It is only a half of a case and since it has a latch on it I can only assume it is missing a cover piece. You will get the additional pieces of paper as well to go with the photo that were the modern notes from the prior owner. Again, we are not experts or collectors, but the prior owner was serious about his passion for collecting and for his research!!
