Oval Daguerreotype of Officer in Full Dress Uniform

A very handsome but slightly faded daguerreotype image of a young officer, probably a lieutenant in full dress uniform with gold brush epaulettes, in a single breasted frock coat. The image is contained in an oval leather covered case with a script letter “D” on the pad. The case is intact, although the brass hinge is a little loose. Dimensions: 3 by 3.5 inches in the case. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $30.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

 

Condition:

Very good condition overall. Although faded, the image is still quite visible. The case is also very good. Witherell's strives to provide as much information and photographs as possible but encourages in-person inspection by bidders.
