Daguerreotype Image of an Officer

A very faded image of an officer, probably pre-Civil War. His gold braid and lace is the main thing that is visible in the image. He is wearing brush epaulettes, has a moderately high gold laced collar, gold cud=ff plackets, and two rows of gold buttons. He is wearing a dark coat, holding gloves in his hand, is wearing a wedding ring, and may have a hat on the table beside him. The image is contained in a leather bound case that has split at the leather hinge.  Dimensions: 3 3/8 by 3 ¾ inches in the case. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $30.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

 

Condition:

The image is quite faded, but the gold braid and lace are still visible, and in the right light the man’s face is visible. The leather bound case is separated at the hinge, and the velvet has stains where paper was glued to it. Witherell's strives to provide as much information and photographs as possible but encourages in-person inspection by bidders.
