Cabinet Card-Naval Vivandiere
Item #: NEW-0017026

Click image to enlarge
I purchased two of these images by Moberg in Brooklyn N Y as I was so curious as to the subject's outfit. The other sold. The image is very light, though clear.  The background is murky raising the possibility that the image was reproduced from an earlier photograph since the Vivandieres were active during the Civil War.  This woman appears to be in her 40's so it is possible that photograph was made in the 1880's to document or re-enact her role in the war.  I have been able to find images on the web that duplicate the canteen on a strap, the uniform with an apron and an exact description of the hat that she is wearing.  Note the naval insignia on her plumed hat.  There are few images of Vivandieres on the web and I was unable to find a Naval one.

Lincoln's Tomb-Mounted Albumen-Group of People
Item #: NEW-0015048

Click image to enlarge
This photograph with board measures 8 X 10 inches. There are three small edge tears which you don't notice due to the professional mounting. There is a notch in the bottom edge. There is a photographer's imprint, which I can't read but the town is Milford, Illinois.  The large grouping of people most likely indicates that it was made for some special event.

Stone Lithograph-Abraham Lincoln
Item #: NEW-0012543

Click image to enlarge
This is actually a beautiful stone lithograph of Lincoln's head with a fantasy body.  Lincoln was a rather homely man and his image was touched up by many artists.  It has been trimmed to the right hand to fit the frame.  There is a touch of scotch tape residue on the printed autograph where someone had made a fake autograph and put it over the printed one.  Measures 19 plus by 15 inches. The scan has not captured the creme color on the border and in real life it is lighter. There are some acidic stains on the back where the framer did not use acid free tape.

CDV-Nashville State Capitol-Occupation
Item #: NEW-0011285

Click image to enlarge
This view was produced by J H Van Stavoren's Metropolitan Gallery, H Hall photographer.  This was made during the Union occupation of Nashville.  Roughness to the edges, including a cut at the top and some edge stains. The top sky area has a dingy appearance. The Capitol is quite light in fact you cannot see the top of the Capitol.  There is a crease on the photo itself but not too prominent.  This is a rare view showing the buildings under the Capitol, including the tents for the occupational army.. The dark structure is St Marys.  Demombreum Street would be the reference point for this view. Please study the scan closely to view the overall condition.
