Tintypes-African American Brother and Sister-Slaves
Item #: NEW-0014616

Click image to enlarge
This is a sixth plate double case of possible slaves.  They are clearly brother and sister and their expressions are quite expressive.  The man is holding crutches and is dressed better than his sister who appears to be a toiler.  She looks tired while he seems to have a touch of defiance.  Nice condition on the tintypes.  I can't see the white areas at the bottom of the images, perhaps they are under the preservers.  The case is complete but has been repaired on one edge and there is other wear to the edges. Purchased in Tennessee. No paypal on this item but payment plans can be arranged.

CDV-C C Giers-Famous Civil War Photographer-Nashville
Item #: NEW-0014260

Click image to enlarge
This image was taken of C C Giers in Germany  J Albert photographer in Munchen. Note the scattered small white areas in the photo.  Giers was born in Germany in 1928 but moved to the United States in 1845 and to Nashville in 1852.  He was highly respected for his photographs of highly ranking Confederates and when Nashville became occupied, he continued his profession with Union soldiers.  This photo would have been taken during a visit back to Germany.  I believe this is a rare pose of Giers.

Sixth Plate Ambrotype-Black Woman with White Bably
Item #: NEW-009941

Click image to enlarge
I can't quite capture this image with my scanner which has rendered it darker than it is.  In good lighting the image can be seen clearly although the woman's features are darker than the white baby.  The light scan has been artificially lightened but also does not capture the feel of the image.  The woman is beautiful and is dressed in high fashion.  She was either a highly valued slave or a nanny.  The image is not in the original case.  It was in a very worn, early composition half case. I thought the image deserved a nice case and the leather case is in excellent condition.

Unusual Post Mortem Mounted Albumen
Item #: NEW-008615

Click image to enlarge
This image measures 7 by 5 inches and is mounted on a board. Board has stains and dingy appearance. This photograph shows a man sitting in a chair and balancing the body of his wife. Note the stunned and grieving expression on the husband's face. The wife's face is indistinct and she is holding a doll. This sad photograph deserves a story so I've made up one. I believe the primitive background makes it likely that it is Western. Note the makeshift photographer's back drop which looks like a bedspread or table cloth. The doll may denote that the woman died in child birth and perhaps had the doll for the upcoming child. Note the shoes showing under the back drop, no doubt a members of the mourning party for the funeral that was to take place. There is no photographer mark.

Daguerreotype-Identified Nashville Slave
Item #: NEW-003798

Click image to enlarge
Paypal will not be accepted on this items although I will accept a payment plan. This is a ninth plate image of an identified Nashville slave. See image, which is a little dark and has some solarization. Full leather case, though not the original one. The image was sealed when I bought it but the brown spots made it essential to clean the cover glass. This image was obtained from a family estate in Nashville. See scan to view the note found with the image. Using the information on the note I was able to locate the grave of "Aunt Rhoda Phillips" who was buried in the family plot in Nashville historic cemetery, Mt. Olivet. A funeral official helped me, who up until then was unaware that they had another slave buried at Mt. Olivet. Blacks were not allowed to be buried there during that period of time. Undoubtedly the prominence of the families allowed that two exceptions were made. I was able to verify the provenance of this rare dag though a family member who also provided me a copy of a newspaper article reporting her death. Aunt Rhoda died in 1906, still living with descendants of the family whose children she had reared and who had adopted her as part of their family. It should be noted that daguerreotypes of slaves are very rare due to the expense and identified slaves are even rarer. The price on this will not be lowered. I have committed myself to half this with a family member who was unaware that it was sold at the estate sale.
