Original 1/9th plate tintype in half of a case.... young woman wearing an interesting hat and holding a sword! Civil War years.. possibly a vivandiere? Or maybe she is holding the sword of a deceased soldier husband or brother? If so, there are examples that exist but they are very rare. The cap has a band and feather, and she is also wearing hand-painted gold jewelry.

An amazing image! Nice, clear image in excellent antique condition behind glass and mat.
