Here we offer a Civil War-era cdv photograph of President Abraham Lincoln, framed in a striking period 19th century black velvet and bronzed tin mourning frame. February 9, 1864 Anthony Berger portrait taken at Mathew Brady's Washington D.
It has been clipped to fit the frame. Frame features a bow decorated in red, white, and blue enamel paint. Original loop hanger on the back of the frame. The frame is set with true wavy glass. Which is the kind of sheet glass made prior to modern methods, featuring visible imperfections and a slight wavy lay.
The velvet in great condition and the bronzing is pitted. A few of the tabs at the back are chipped, which happens with repeated opening of the back, so I've taken pictures to keep you from becoming curious and damaging your frame. Measures approximately 4.75 x 4-inches overall. This remarkable Civil War era relic will make a wonderful addition to your collection or a very thoughtful gift for an enthusiast.
