Antique Ambrotype Whaling Painting Capt Whales Nautical Ships Harpoon Photograph For Sale

Antique Ambrotype Whaling Painting Capt Whales Nautical Ships Harpoon Photograph

THIS LISTING IS FOR A UNIQUE AMBROTYPE PORTRAIT OF A WHALING CAPTAIN POSED IN FRONT OF A VERY DETAILED PAINTED WHALING MURAL. THE CAPTAIN HIMSELF, QUITE DIGNIFIED, HAS RUDDY CHEEKS (TINTED), ANDIS WEARING FINERY THAT INCLUDES A VEST WITH WHALE TOGGLES, A NECKLACE WITH SOMETHING THAT SEEMS TO BE AN INSTRUMENT OF SOME SORT, AND IS HOLDING SOMETHING I HAVEN'T IDENTIFIED, BUT I HAVE INCLUDED DETAILED PHOTOS.

THE FABULOUS, VERY DETAILED PAINTED MURAL BEHIND THE CAPTAIN IS A WHALING SCENE, COMPLETE WITH WHALING VESSELS IN FULL SAIL, HARPOONERS IN WHALEBOATS, THE WHALE, COMPLETE WITH HIS MOUTH OPEN AND TEETH EXPOSED, HAS BEEN HARPOONED, AND IS BLEEDING (TINTED RED). THE SWIRLING OCEAN AND CLOUDS COMPLETE THIS HAUNTING AND BEAUTIFUL SCENE, BY SOMEONE WHO WAS CLEARLY AN ACCOMPLISHED ARTIST, BUT WHICH ALTHOUGH I HAVE ATTEMPTED OVER THE YEARSTO IDENTIFY, I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO DO SO.

THE IMAGE IS CASED, THE MEASUREMENTS APPROXIMATELY 6" x 5" x 1" (CLOSED). THE CASE IS A BIT SCUFFED AND WORN IN PLACES, AS YOU WOULD EXPECT FROM AN ANTIQUE, BUT STILL HAS A GOOD DEAL OF THE GILDING BORDER ON BOTH FRONT AND BACK, AND THE CLASPS ARE INTACT. THE HINGE HAS BEEN REPAIRED (TAPE) AT SOME POINT IN THE PAST, SO IS IN GOOD (REPAIRED) CONDITION. THE MAT IS A SIMPLE GOLD OVAL WITH A SIMPLE BORDER AROUND THE OPENING.

I HAVE SCANNED THE IMAGES, WHICH EXAGGERATE THE DUST AND PARTICLES, BUT SHOW THE IMAGE BETTER. THE IMAGE COULD USE A CLEANING, WHICH I LEAVE TO THE BUYER, BUT THE ACTUAL IMAGE IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THIS AMBROTYPE IS THAT THERE IS A SMALL AREA IN WHICH THE BLACK APPLIED BACKING HAS LIFTED, BUT IF THE BUYER WISHES, IS A SIMPLE RESTORATION BY A PROFESSIONAL, WHICH I HAVE CHOSEN NOT TO HAVE DONE FOR MYSELF.

IN ALL MY YEARS OF COLLECTING I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANOTHER IMAGE LIKE THIS ONE, AND HOPE THAT THE RIGHT COLLECTOR WILL FIND THIS MUSEUM QUALITY IMAGE AS COMPELLING AS I DO.

PLEASE REMEMBER THIS PHOTO IS AN ANTIQUE, AND AS ALWAYS, THE IMAGES INCLUDED WITH THIS LISTING ARE PART OF THE DESCRIPTION.

SHIPS FREE, WELL-PACKED AND FULLY INSURED TO LOWER 48 UNITED STATES ONLY! PLEASE DO NOT offer UNLESS YOU ARE WITHIN THE SHIPPING AREA!THANK YOU.

Payment for this listing is required within 3 days of closing. Item will ship within 3 days of receiving cleared payment. PayPal only.
