    Description

    [Civil War]. Two GAR Related Daguerreotypes. Two studio portraits, 3.25" x 3.75" and 5.5" x 4.5", of veterans of the Grand Army of the Republic. The smaller, cased image shows a seated man, dressed in civilian clothes and with a hat resting on the table beside him. The gold metal frame of the image has been embellished with patriotic symbols. The second image, without a case, is a half plate tintype, group shot of seven veterans with an American flag hung behind them. All of the men have their GAR medals pinned to their chest, and most are wearing GAR hats.

    Condition: The gold metal frame on the group image has cracked at the top corner and has begun to separate, but the image is in good condition. The case and image of the other are both very fine.
