#11408 - Dapper Union Artilleryman with Ostrich Plume Hat
This is a 1/6-th plate tintype of a snazzy Union artilleryman with red piping painted onto his uniform by the original CW era photographer. His cheeks are light pink and buttons gold. He has this great black ostrich plume feather in his kepi. No soldier ID known. This comes in an octagonal shaped hard gutta percha case with original fancy brass mats. The case shows a man and woman playing chess. The case has cracks in it with some pieces glued. Intact and stable but must be treated gently in future! The tintype has tiny spots of emulsion loss but not offensive. A very cool image.
