    Charles Eisenmann Cabinet of Unidentified Indian Family. Attractive studio cabinet card by noted New York photographer Charles Eisenmann, featuring an Indian family (possibly Ojibwa or Kiowa) wearing their finest clothes. The father holds a hatchet and rifle, and wears an intricately beaded and fringed jacket and pants. Both mother and daughter wear fringed and beaded skirts. Eisenmann is probably best known for his images taken at 19th century sideshows and circuses, depicting the physical abnormalities of humans and animals featured at these shows. Image measures 5.5" x 3.75" and is affixed to Eisenmann's gilt-edged mount; imprint on verso. From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.

    Condition: Damage to upper right corner of mount, else very fine.
