    Description

    1/6th PLATE TINTYPE OF COWBOY WITH COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY - ca.1875-1890.
    A wonderfully expressive tintype portrait of a rough Cowboy chomping on his cigar, featuring a nickel-plated Colt Single Action Army and holster rig. The cowboy has pulled the Colt "Peacemaker" out of the holster and turned it around so that it faces outward. He is wearing leather chaps, a bandana, a hat, vest and boots. There is a whiskey bottle next to him on the pedestal. The image measures 2.3"x 3.5" and has a few minor bends, but retains great contrast and a soft tone. A great original tintype image of an iconic Western cowboy.
