    Description

    SET OF FOUR CAVALRY TROOPERS GROUPS - BOUDOIR CARDS - ca. 1885. This is a nice set of unmarked outdoor images showing cavalry troopers in everyday life, with their families, and in field exercises. The first image shows two cavalry troopers with Colt single action Army revolvers, pointing at another armed trooper who has his hands raised. All of the men have fine cut-flap rigs and "US" Mills-type belt buckles. The other cards show the hospital, the officers with their families at a tent, and a lightly toned bird's-eye-view of "live fire" field exercises in which smoke can be seen. The cards measure 8"x 5" and have darkening and foxing; the tone of the hospital image is light as well, but the others have fair contrast.

    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.
