Quarter plate ruby ambrotype of a mounted bugler beautifully hand-tinted. (Exceptional clarity and contrast, few minor abrasions in surface where plate meets mat.) Housed in full Union case, Suspended Bowl with Flowers [Berg 2-9] (loose hinges, some chipping to edges and corners).
The bearded subject stands in a studio with sword in hand before a canvas backdrop depicting a camp scene. He wears a gold-tinted, regulation pattern shell jacket with the correct number of horizontal rows of gold piped braid emanating from the placket. The image is a classic study of a cavalry bugler.
