¼ plate daguerreotype of a Civil War era couple in a 5" x 4" black Gutta Percha or Union Case. The cover and the back both display a military figure entitled "Havelock." An interesting historical design, the image is of Sir Henry Havelock (1795 - 1857,) British officer and national hero for whom his cap and neck covering came to be named. This case, considered among collectors to be rare, is in exquisite condition with sharp corners and crisp molded details. Hinges are firmly in place and the velvet preserver, mat and glass are pristine.
