Ninth Plate Ambrotype of Confederate Officer, Possibly Henry Eustace McCulloch

Lot of 2, featuring a ninth plate ambrotype of a Confederate officer in uniform, his buttons lightly tinted gold, housed in full, octagonal thermoplastic case. Accompanied by a sixth plate ambrotype of the same man, younger in appearance, dressed in civilian attire, housed in full pressed paper case. These two images were found together with the collection of photographs of Benjamin McCulloch that descended directly in the McCulloch family, and it has been suggested that the subject may be Benjamin's brother, Henry Eustace McCulloch (1816-1895), who was a soldier in the Texas Revolution, a Texas Ranger, and a Confederate Brigadier General. However, this identification cannot be confirmed. 

Provenance:Descended Directly in the Family of Henry E. McCulloch, Brother to Benjamin McCulloch


Some loss to emulsion of ninth plate ambrotype as well as sixth plate ambrotype. Some wear to cases. 

Estimate: $200 - $400
