Fine Signed Rees Ambrotype of a Confederate Cavalryman – This is a superb, sixth plate ambrotype depicting a nearly full length view of a Confederate cavalryman, armed with what appears to be a M1860 Light Cavalry Saber and a revolver (holstered). The soldier wears what appears to be a M1851 sword belt with shoulder strap, a fine pair of gauntlets, forage cap and a nine-button shell jacket. It has been suggested that this image is an early war image of a Maryland cavalry soldier. This is a high quality plate – it is distinct in its clarity and is highly desirable, as it exhibits the characteristic signature of the famed, Richmond photographer C.R. Rees, in the lower right area of the plate. The image is housed in a full, Union case, with full mat and original glass. SOLD
