#4164 - Pensively Posed Union Soldier
This is a 1/6-th Plate Tintype of a Union soldier who is pensively posed with a far-off "searching" look upon his wise face. Perched upon a chair in a rather casual 3/4 view for the era, the image is a lovely study of a thoughtful man about to embark upon the cruel path of indiscriminant warfare. The buttons of his vest & frock coat are highlighted in photographer by gold leaf paint. His cheeks ever-so-lightly tinted pink. Clarity is great with a slightly-dark contrast. No soldier ID. Comes in its original full leatherette case with new tape upon spine. Very fine image for a mid-level buyer.
