    Description

    Half Plate Civil War Tintype (Krainik 12), ca. early 1860s, housed in a rare thermoplastic case embossed on both sides with "The Holy Family", Krainik 12. A young soldier of indeterminate loyalty wears a seven-button sack coat beneath a white scarf that was no doubt knitted by one or both of the young ladies with whom he is here entangled. It would seem that the women are the soldier's sisters since he sports no wedding band. The scene decorating the case comes directly from a 1515 Raphael painting in Rome. Trivial chips to the case as expected, some discoloration to the brass mat, else very fine condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
