    Description

    Ninth Plate Tintype Of Federal Soldier In Very Fine Papier Mache Inlaid Case. Very fine quality, excellent, just a few negligible creases not affecting image or emulsion. Remarkably, the subject actually appears to be a woman. Wears black slouch hat with acorn tassel cord, 12 button shell jacket that is open at the bottom exposing either a vest or some kind of a waist sash with three buttons at the bottom. Most unusual and clearly and example of 'you be the judge'. Housed in a very fine papier mache, mother of pearl inlaid case, sound with hinge intact and wide brass clasp.

    From the estate of Houston collector Brent Burg.

    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.
