British Officer Aide de Camp Half Plate Painted Daguerreotype

A half plate image of a British officer, possibly the future Edward VII, in red painted coatee with gold brush epaulettes, and the aiguillette of an aide de camp to the Queen, with a sword in his hands. His uniform is quite ornate, with figured lace as the stripe on his trousers, and a double row of braid on his collar, and cuffs that appear to be solid gold lace. The image is in a matte with an oval opening, and contained in a leatherette case. 

Condition: The surround of the image has been cleaned. The painted part of the image- the figure- is quite clear and sharp. The subject’s face is very clear, and does bear a very strong resemblance to other known images of Edward VII. The case is very good. 

Size: The image is 4 ¼ by 5 inches. The case is 4 ½ by 5 ½ inches.
