Quarter Plate Tintype of Pugilists
Quarter plate tintype of two men in a fighting stance, both shirtless and wearing boots, wool trousers, and tinted red sashes around their waists. The sashes appear to be Union artillery officers' sashes and, together with the rest of their outfits, it is reasonable to assume this is a Civil War-era image. Housed in The Capture of Major Andre Union case (Krainik-18).
Image and case both in very good condition. The only imperfections in the plate are a few minor scratches where the brass mat meets the plate, as usually seen.
