The Civil War
 Confederate Cased Images





4232 - A YOUNG REBEL WEARING A COARSE WOOLEN JACKET
, 1/6th plate ambrotype in a full thermoplastic case. A young Rebel probably about 18 poses for the photographer wearing a coarse woolen jacket with tinted buttons. A good value for someone who wants a definite Rebel at a moderate price and a sixth plate to boot in a thermoplastic case. Overall very good, no bothersome blemishes...........................................................
$495.00


11041 - A REBEL DOUBLE ARMED WEARING A KNAPSACK, 1/6th plate ambrotype in a full leather case. This Rebel stands posing in regulation uniform with kepi showing the leather straps of a knapsack on his back. In his belt is a Whitney revolver and to his left he holds a Model 1841 Mississippi 54. Caliber musket. He also has a leather cap box on his belt. The image is crystal clear. The image is free from any marks or damage. His buttons are tinted gold and his belt buckle silver, which is unusual. He stands posing in front of a canvas backdrop typical of a traveling camp photographer. An excellent value at...................................$2,500.00

11045 - A NORTH CAROLINA REBEL WITH HIS IVORY HANDLED REVOLVER, 1/6th plate ambrotype in a gutta-percha case. A wonderful tinted ambrotype of a North Carolina soldier sporting a rare ivory handled pistol in his belt with a book opened in his left hand. The book's cover is not shown but it is most likely his Bible and quite possibly it is opened to a special passage important to him. He has a leather or fabric watch chain around his neck supporting his pocket watch which is tucked in a pocket. His standard single breasted coat is not adorned with any insignia. The condition is superb with life-like flesh tones added by the artist. His rectangular plate and buttons are tinted gold. When first sold the state of origin was not known but a sharp observer recognized the unusual spindle to the prop chair which that same chair was used in several North Carolina images in Greg Mast's book, Volume I, State Troops and Volunteers, A Photographic Record of North Carolina's Civil War Soldiers. That chair prop was used by a Raleigh photographer [more details included]. A beautiful image............................................................$3,950.00

11048 - A TEENAGER OFF TO WAR FOR THE CONFEDERACY, 1/6th plate ambrotype in a full leather case. This young soldier looks no more than 15 - 16 years of age. He wears a battle shirt and kepi and poses with a .69 caliber musket that has been converted to percussion. The musket has a drum bolster type of conversion. The image is sharp and clear with just ome rubbing away from the solider at the mat edge. This young soldier appears to be very apprehensive as he has already seen battle or is about to be engaged. These young Rebel images of baby faced boys are rare.....................................................$3,250.00


11050 - WESTERN REBEL POSES WITH A GIANT ARKANSAS TOOTHPICK BOWIE KNIFE AND HOLSTERED REVOLVER
, Commonly known as a 1/8th plate in brass mat and glass. This superb Rebel poses with an unsheathed upright large bowie knife known as a "Arkansas Toothpick" with a wooden handle. He wears a slouch hat and a V style battle shirt ornamented with buttons. On his right side one can see the handle of a holstered revolver with a lanyard around his neck. The tintype has a southern style paper mat with embossed stars surrounding the image. Typical of a Trans-Mississippi cavalryman from Texas or Arkansas. Sharp and clear..............................................
$4,250.00


7159 - A TRIPLE ARMED CONFEDERATE, 1/6th plate ambrotype in a full case. A bust pose of a young Confederate most probably artillery by the dark color of his collar with two large Colt Revolvers tucked into his belt.

Quite moderately priced for a triple armed Rebel.....................................................$2,650.00

1134 - YOUNG REB WITH BONE BUTTON COAT, 1/6th plate ambrotype in a half case. Bust pose of a young Confederate wearing a coarse coat with bone buttons, an insignia or button is tinted gold on his collar and there is a partial star showing at his neck. The coat is sewn very crudely. There are surface blems to the plate which for the most part are away from the subject. His lips and cheeks are lightly tinted.............................................$350.00

A Cavalry officer posed holding his yellow plumed hat in his lap. On the verso of the photo in pencil is written...J.R...E Butler. In checking Confederate records, the only two Confederate officers in any cavalry corps were E.V. Butler of Border's Texas Cavalry Regiment and Edward Butler of the 45th Arkansas Mounted Infantry. The handwriting could be a E.V. Butler but there is no absolute way to prove it. Thus it is priced at............................................................$975.00



7601 - REBEL WITH POSED BOWIE KNIFE ACROSS HIS CHEST
, 1/9th plate tintype in full case. A Confederate in regulation coat, wears a two piece buckle that has been tinted gold along with his buttons. He holds a bowie knife across his chest. A nice image at....................................................
$1,495.00

120905 - ARMED REBEL SIXTH PLATE, 1/6th plate tintype in full case. A young Rebel seated posing with a Colt Navy 36 caliber revolver across his chest. His gray uniform is clearly seen with tinted buttons under a darker frock coat. He sits in a Victorian chair posing for the photographer.

73003 - YOUNG REBEL WITH FANTASTIC DETAILED POWDER FLASK, 1/6th plate ambrotype in a full leather case. This young Confederate poses seated wearing a lightly tinted light jacket, large revolver in his belt and a brass powder horn on his belt that is so detailed you can see the cannon scene.
