[CIVIL WAR - ZOUAVES]. A group of 2 sixth plate images of armed Zouave soldiers, incl. ambrotype and tintype.

Sixth plate ambrotype of seated Zouave holding a pistol in one hand and indiscernible object in the other hand. N.p., n.d. (Wear to image, contrast a bit weak. Ambrotype plate is in tact, but lacquered glass plate that serves as backing to ambrotype is cracked into three pieces.) Housed in half case (surface wear). 

Sixth plate tintype portrait of young soldier standing in a studio, wearing Zouave-style cap. He holds a pistol in each hand and also appears to have a third pistol tucked in his belt. N.p., n.d. (Surface mottling and nicks in plate, contrast a bit weak, but it seems the soldier may have moved while the image was taken.) This may be a period copy image indicated by the black border along perimeter of plate. Housed in full, pressed paper case (reinforced at hinge, surface wear to case and interior velvet pad). 

Estimate: $200 - $300
