A very handsome young NY Militia Soldier in dress uniform holding his shako. The newspaper clipping found behind the Antique Ambro is dated 1852 with references to Worcester, MA. The ambrotype itself is an early one but not quite this early. This is a "Cutting" Ambrotype whereby 2 pieces of glass were sandwiched by using a certain type of resin. This technique was in use between 1855 to about 1857. The finely pebbled mat also point to an early Ambrotype.

Aside from our soldier's portrait being so dark every other aspect is in excellent condition. The pattern seen on the face and hands indicates the presence of resin. Far less obvious when viewed in hand. The intact case is leather featuring a floral theme while the red velvet pad shows more of the same plus a cupid in the center. A 6th plate measures 3 1/4" x 2 3/4" FREE SHIPPING.
