Union Soldier with Cross, Ruby Ambrotype in Diary Case

A very handsome ninth plate ruby ambrotype of a young Union soldier, seated, in an open frock coat with a military style vest. He is wearing a watch chain and a long gold chain around his neck that almost certainly has a cross on it. Although he appears to be quite young, he has two service stripes on his sleeve. The image is cased in a “diary style” case of leather with a clasp on the front. It is in a gold matte. Dimensions: 2 3/8 by 2 7/8 in the case. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $30.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

 

Condition:

There is a crack running down the image that is only visible on close examination. Other than that the image and the case are excellent. Witherell's strives to provide as much information and photographs as possible but encourages in-person inspection by bidders.
