A soldier, c. 1875
Thomas Johnson of Leicester
Two hand-coloured carte de visite portraits of an unidentified British soldier wearing a bearskin, with medals up. The hand-colouring has been executed to a particularly high standard and is still fresh and vivid.
Photographed by Thomas Johnson of Leicester.
Condition: both prints present some small imperfections and some fine spotting in the area of the background but the hand-colouring is in excellent condition. The mounts are 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).
