A small boy with a German helmet
A. Kindermann of Hamburg
A German carte-de-visite portrait of a small boy with a sword and spiked helmet. The open book lying on the floor behind him appears to be a photograph album of some kind. An inked inscription verso in a fine period hand read: ‘Ende 1867.’
Photographed by A. Kindermann of Hamburg in Germany.
Condition: the print presents a few small imperfections and a small amount of fine spotting in the area of the background but has very good tonal range. The mount is clean and firm, with crisp edges and sharp corners.
Dimensions: the dimensions of a standard carte-de-visite are approximately 4.1" by 2.5" (10.5 cm by 6.3 cm).
