Civil War Solider Portrait. Sixth-Plate Daguerreotype (1840 - 1855), 19th century portrait, vintage case, 2.75 x 3.25. The daguerreotype photograph, developed in 1839 by Louis Daguerre, was the very process that would make history as the first publicly announced and commercially recognized photographic process. This type of image can be identified by its mirror-like surface of metallic silver which, when tilted, may virtually disappear.

This 19th century half-length portrait depicts a Civil War-era soldier, donning a military uniform and a glove on his left hand. The solider's buttons and belt buckle have been tinted gold. The image is bordered by an embellished gold frame. The interior of the front cover is lined in red velvet and features the identifying embellishments, "R. N. Keely / C'or 5th & Coates's / Philad."

In very good condition, with the expected wear to the case, some scattered spotting and a halo of silvering framing the image.
