DescriptionSalmon P. Chase: Signed Large Mounted Albumen Portrait. 11" x 14" profile portrait of Secretary of the Treasury and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Salmon Portland Chase. Signed on the mount: "S. P. Chase/ Dec. 30 1863". Creatively matted and framed to an overall size of 13 1/2" x 16 1/2", in what may be the original frame. This is the first large size, from-life photograph of Chase we have seen, made all-the-more desirable by virtue of it being signed during Chase's tenure in the Cabinet of President Abraham Lincoln.
