Cased Tinted Ambrotype Civil War Soldier - Identified Studio
The soldier has all his buttons tinted with gold and is posed wearing his hat, and possibly a knife in his belt.
The ambrotype is of 9th plate size, (2" by 2 1/2"), and is housed in a leather case with an embossed geometric design. The red velvet pad bears the name of the photography studio, Schoonmakers, River Street, Troy New York. I guess he was a New York soldier. Studio embossed pads are themselves somewhat rare, and collectable in their own right.
The ambrotype appears to be in fine shape. The case is in nice shape but has had its leather spine rebound. The single latch is intact. The red velvet pad is in excellent condition.
Please Note: Advanced approval is required on any international shipments before placing of orders.
