Today we are delighted to offer for sale a wonderful Civil War-era tintype photograph of a Confederate soldier, complete with stamped leather case!
An early form of photography, tintypes were made by transferring a positive image directly to a thin sheet of metal, which was coated with a dark lacquer or enamel. They were the most popular form of photography in the 1860s and 1870s. This one is a ninth-plate tintype, which refers to the size of the image. This tintype shows a Confederate soldier in militia uniform.
The image is mounted in a stamped leather union case with latch closure. A rich maroon velvet pad with embossed floral and scroll design on the inner verso side of the case protects the glass-covered photograph. Image is surrounded by elaborate gilt metal mat with elaborate border.
The outside of the case has embossed floral designs. Tintype presents in good, as-found antique condition, with minor patina and minimal loss of detail on the image due to darkening. Velvet pad has minor discoloration and minor loss of gilding is present on the gilt mat surround. Union case has wear and light scuffing commensurate with age. What a fantastic addition to any antique photography or Civil War collection.1.5 in width x appx. 2" in height (frame obscures borders of image) Dimensions/case: 2-3/8" in width (closed), 3" in height, 5/8" in depth (closed).
