A VERY ODD JACKET. This fellow certainly wasn?t of an advanced age, but he had already perfected a meaningful stare and a snarl on his tightly clenched lips. I would have liked to have seen his hands that were never visible even when the brass mat was removed to make an archival seal. This is a spectacular male portrait on a sixth plate that presents a sincere character study from the mid-19th century! Condition is fantastic and the leather case needs a new hinge. The depth is holographic.
