    Description

    Sixteenth Plate Tintype in Book Type Case with Washington Equestrian Motif, Circa 1858. Not listed in Berg. An exceedingly rare case, the first example we've seen, with the iconic image of Washington mounted on horseback doffing his hat, embossed in an oval medallion on the front. Red Moroccan leather, gilt sides, brass clasp for closure. A couple of worn spots on back side edge, else excellent sound condition. Houses a tintype bust of a young woman, perfect. Rare opportunity for the advanced case collector.
