More About this Item


Description

UNION SERGEANT, CO. "F." 1/6 plate ambrotype on ruby glass, in half case. Seated before a painted encampment backdrop, this spiffed-up sergeant poses in his fresh finery, in white gloves. His sergeant's stripes are partly covered by the mat at left. He holds his M1851 Hardee hat with one side pinned up and the ostrich feather visible. The initial of his company, "F," is pinned inside the infantry insignia. The guard of his sword is visible next to his hat, the blade covered by his sash. A small revolver is tucked into the sash beneath his belt. A large wood-handled knife is on a sheath attached to his belt next to the belt plate. His watch chain hangs over it. Buttons and sword guard are finely gilded. The tablecloth at lower right adds to the sense of busy detail that fills the plate. [4]
