Description

Really neat sixth plate tintype of this young New York infantryman. This young soldier doesn’t appear to be more than 16 or 17 years of age as he sits with a small smirk on his face. Dressed in his newly issued New York jacket and trousers. His cap rests on the table at his side. He is shown holding a large, black lacquered, book style photograph case in his hand. Based on it’s size it appears to have been a half plate size. On the cover is painted a landscape scene with trees and bushes and what appears to be a building or castle in the background. I have flipped the image of the case here to give a better view of the cover. Really cool image! Housed in a full leatherette case.
