DescriptionExcellent Boudoir Cabinet of Faux Mountain Man, circa 1880s. Outstanding image of what appears to be a wily mountain man in rough fringed buckskin jacket and pants - unfortunately, his lace-up shoes give him away as a city dweller. Taken in an unknown photographer's studio, the subject sports extreme facial hair, wears a coiled rope hanging from one shoulder, and has two handguns one being a pepper box and a Bowie knife tucked into his belt. Of particular interest is the long gun he holds atop his shoulders, identified on verso as a "7 bol multi-shot rifle." Image measures 4.75" x 7.5" and is affixed to a slightly larger, gilt-edged, black photographer's mount. Image is quite handsome, with strong contrast and excellent focus - suitable for prominent display! From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.
Condition: Pinholes at upper and lower center of mount; small tear in photo emanating from upper pin hole. Minor wear to mount.
