    U.S. Army: Painted Portrait of a Brigadier General in Full Uniform and Holding a Model 1832 Army General Staff Officer's Sword, Circa 1838-1842. The painting pictures an unidentified brigadier wearing a late 1830s pattern United States Army general officer's uniform. The brass crescents on the epaulettes and the epaulette buttons affixed to the collar suggest the period from 1838 to 1842. The most interesting feature of the painting is the inclusion of the Model 1832 army general staff officer's sword held in the sitter's arms. This pattern weapon is seldom pictured in period paintings. The unsigned painting, 25" x 30" and executed in oil, has been re-backed and re-stretched. It is a rare and elegant painting in very fine condition.
