#15693 - Wounded Ambrotype of a Cocky Naval Officer
This is an original sixth glass-plate Ambrotype of a cocky Union naval officer. His buttons and shoulder bars were nicely highlighted in gold by the original photographer. This image has real "character" but there are issues: first, a ring of dark peripheral halo solarization is encroaching on the man, just catching his forehead. Next, someone once tried to clean the plate and wiped away some emulsion over his coat before realizing their error and stopping. There is no ID known. Comes under original glass and fancy brass facing mat. A full pressed leatherette case. This "looks" like it is a survivor of the Nineteenth Century. Price adjusted for condition.
