Rare miniature CDV, or "Minette" photograph of a white dog on a leash, taken by New Haven, Connecticut photographer Frank Bowman. This is an especially rare image by Bowman, instead of his imprint on the back there is an advertisement for the 1888 dog show, which took place on April 17, 18, 19, at the polo rink in New Haven.
These mini Bowman images of animals are rare, and this is the only example I have ever seen of one of them with the dog show backmark. Including the mount, the dimensions are about 2.5" x 1.5".
Very good antique condition overall, light foxing, age-related discoloration and wear, a pin hole.
