Original tintype of an older, bearded man, pretending? to have fallen asleep reading a newspaper, which he is holding. On his feet, which are propped up, he is wearing embroidered smoking slippers; he appears to have been warming them next to the great cast iron parlor stove on the right. An unusual and rare, great scene. *** Doubtful that this is a post mortem, though some who have seen it believe it is! Would be an incredible one, if so...

A light/moderate horizontal bend and light surface wear. Zoom in for details. About 3.5" x 2.5".
