1870's Martin Wise hand tinted & signed Original Vintage Tintype Photo
#858 Wise Genealogy:
On reverse: "Martin Wise" is beautifully handwritten and handsigned in pencil on decorative paper sleeve. Photo type: Original Antique Victorian CDV sized Tintpe Photograph. Photographer: Unmarked, Unknown.
This beautiful old Civil War era photo was found in Deerfield, Franklin County,
Massachusetts. Martin wears a black silk suit coat with a cravat at his neck and handlebar moustache. His cheeks are hand tinted, and it was taken by a skilled photographer, a beautiful portrait. It is unusual for us to find identified tintypes. Our best guess is this photo was taken after the Civil War, in the 1870's. Martin would have been born in the early 1850's, which is another guess. Do you know him? A beautiful old Wise family piece!
Size: 2.5 x 4 inches
Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
