PRE CIVIL WAR TINTYPE FRONTIER FORT WITH LEPERS & AFRICAN AMERICANS & SOLDIERS Picture(s) and Description:
Fresh from the old estate attic is a true treasure!First,let me start by saying that I have never seen a tintype like this before and probably never will see another one!Everyone has their own opinion of what this is that has seen it.So,I will just tell you what you can see.We think that this was a drawing of a fort on paper or canvas that was getting damaged as you can see parts of the edges missing and someone wanted to preserve it,so they took a picture of it.There are soldiers-there is one soldier putting up a flag;There is groups of forts and one building that has hospital;there is writing on the graphic of the fort that has the word negro and also 5 lepers;The large white sheet is a blow up of the actual tintype.That is the only way we could view the tiny figures.The family was from Puryear,Tenn.but I have no ideal if it was a local fort or not.Tintype measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and needs to be in a museum where it can be appreciated and viewed.I would appreciate any information you can provide so I can add it to my description as one of a kind items come around seldom-.There is NO reserve.Shipping is a guess and will be determined at the end of the auction after it is packed and boxed and I have the winners zipcode since I have alot of buyers picking items up!!!.Payment is expected within 3 days of auction ending or will be relisted unless other arrangements have been made..Pick up on items is always WELCOME!!!! vmahan Store .Great for any collection and there is NO reserve.Payment is requested within 3 days after auction ending.Kentucky residents must pay the 6% tax unless you have a tax resale number.Pick up is always welcome!
