Sixth Plate Tintype of Confederate General Sterling Price

549.99

Item #SQ8896674

Offered here is a sixth plate tintype photograph featuring the image of Confederate General Sterling Price, handsomely dressed with his sword by his side, leaning gently against a Greek-style pedestal. Eagle belt buckle, buttons, and epaulettes are all hand-tinted gold. The image appears to be a period copy of a from-life image. I recently thought it was perhaps a one-of-a-kind image, but have since seen seen a CDV of Price in this same pose belonging to another collector (that image was also a period copy). It's unknown to me if the original from-life image still exists.

The image measures about 2 1/2" x 3". Some deterioration to the image as shown. This is a loose tintype and does not include a case.
