This is a beautiful image of a well loved boy from a very important colonial New England family, and a veteran of the Spanish American War. In the Victorian era, boys wore frocks with pleated skirts, or tunics and blouses over pleated skirts, until the age of three or five. A portrait of the Prince of Wales in a Scottish kilt in 1849 gave rise to this vogue for boys. Pelham is dressed beautifully as such. A stunning piece. This is an important DAR, Daughters of the American Revolution and SAR Sons of the American Revolutionary War family.
