Item No. 4249613

A nice quarter plate (3 1/4" x 4 1/4") Civil War ambrotype featuring five men who I at first thought were brothers, but they bear little resemblance to each other, so perhaps they are a group of friends. The young soldier sits at the right, the brass buttons of his military vest plainly visible. The other gentlemen are finely dressed in coats, vests, and cravats. A light rouge was applied to the cheeks of the man seated at center, so he figures to be of some prominence among the group. Perhaps a teacher and his students? The glass plate is in excellent condition and it is housed in a half leather case.
