    Description

    Astonishingly Pristine Pair of Large Unique 1868 Seymour - Blair and Grant - Colfax Jugate Ferrotypes Large conjoined bust ferros set into carved ivory mounts, each with tiny hole for suspension. Sullivan does not list these, although he does picture the ferro insert with a different frame as USG 1868-104. We have never seen anything like these rope-border ivory frames, and presume they must be manufacturer's samples. The dead-mint condition of both is particularly remarkable considering the vulnerability of the large, ill-protected ferro surfaces. One could not hope to acquire a finer matched jugate pair from this campaign! One of the true prizes from the former Joe Brown Collection. Diameter of each is 31 mm.
