Very Early Or Pre War Quarter Plate Ambrotype Of
Very Early Or Pre War Quarter Plate Ambrotype Of Young Soldier With Confederate ID. Fine quality, excellent condition with just some very minor spotting. Young man standing wearing a triple breasted, dark piped, cadet style uniform, opened exposing vest. Two young women seated in front of him with tinted dresses, doubtless his sisters based on family resemblance. A card which accompanies the image from the consignor(now deceased but a very careful retainer of provenance) identifies the "Man in uniform of the Marsack family of Cleburne, Tx.. He and his father fought for the South in the Civil War." In half case. Nice image and doubtless correct ID.
