Double-cased Two Union Soldiers w/ Knives, Musket Ninth Plate Tintypes

A double cased pair of exceptional images of Union soldiers in a beautiful gutta percha Union case with “The Union” on the front. The left hand soldier has a heavy black beard, and is seated with an oval belt plate, frock coat, forage cap, and the hilt of a knife protruding from his belt. The other soldier is standing wearing a frock coat with shoulder scales and forage cap, with an oval belt plate, his musket at his side with bayonet, and a bowie knife hanging from his belt. They are probably brothers. The images have very handsome Patriotic mattes with a sailing warship in the lower left corner, cannon in the lower right, and Union flags at the top. The images are exceptionally clear. Dimensions: The images in their case are 3 ¼ by 3 ¾ by 7/8 of an inch when closed. Processing within the continental U.S. $30.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

 

Condition:

The images and the case are excellent.
