This beautiful framed Biedermeier Photo of a young man is a typical example for 19th Century Portraits. It dates back to 1866 and is a true Gem of the Biedermeier Epoche. It is special since it has an inscription on the back: "Geburtstags Grüße an seine Mutter von Mein Jung Jacob in America 20 Jahr alt im Juli 1866". It means "Happy Birthday to his Mom from her Son Jacob - 20 years old in Juli 1866" So it appears that Jacob send his German mom a photo from America for her birthday. It is a beautiful photo in a typical Biedermeier frame.
