Very Rare and original, 1870's, CDV size Tintype Photograph of a Hunter with a fantastic hand carved Duck Decoy at his belt!!


This wonderful, American Sporting subject Tintype Photo measures approx. 2 1/8" by 3 1/8" and came to us enclosed in its original, CDV size paper mount (overall size of mount is 2 1/2“ by 4�). It depicts the Hunter standing in a photographer’s studio against a blank backdrop. He is wearing a heavy, though short, coat and a toque style hat. The hand carves duck decoy hangs from his belt at his right side and he holds the barrel of his fowling rifle with his left hand. butt end of the stock of the rifle rests on the floor. The Hunter also wears a Shot Flask on a strap around his neck and over his shoulder as well as a cartridge pouch at his belt.


This outstanding Tintype came to us as part of a wonderful collection of Western and Firearms Subject Tintypes, CDV’s and Cabinet Cards which we are selling this week and next on . It is unconditionally guaranteed original and of the period and comes with our usual lifetime guarantee of authenticity and “no questions asked� return privilege. Be sure to check out this seller’s other sales for a number of other fantastic 19th century Photographs from this small but wonderful collection!!!


Although we have handled quite a few 19th century Photographs of Hunters over the past 33+ years, we have seen only one or two Images in which the hunter displayed a decoy. We can only imagine the value of the beautiful, folk art / hand carved Duck Decoy displayed in this Tintype if it appeared on the market today and the Photo offered here is a rare opportunity to at least get a glimpse of this wonderful Decoy.


This outstanding, American Hunting / Duck Decoy Tintype Photo is in very good condition. The Photo exhibits sharp focus, strong contrast and rich, warm tonality. The surface is stable with no significant surface crazing, no bends, no scratches and onlya very light surface scuff (much more visible in the scans nelow than when viewed "in-hand") and a couple of tiny and unobtrusive surface blemishes. The paper CDV mount is well preserved - opened at the right hand side to allow for full inspection of the edges of the Tintype (easily closed again). Overall this outstanding Tintype is exceptionally well preserved and displays beautifully.


A very rare and simply fantastic, 1870’s Tintype Photograph of a Duck Hunter with his Duck Decoy and a fantastic addition to any collection!!!
