Antique Victorian Gutta Percha Civil War Union Picture Case W/ Picture For Sale
sale is for antique Victorian gutta percha civil war union picture case. This case is rectangle and is approximately 3.25" x 3.75". The pictures are tin type / daguerreotype of a man and woman in ornate copper wire frame. This was manufactured by Littlefield and Parsons Company.A little info from the Dagerreian Society:A
"Union Case" and is an example of an early thermoplastic technology, being
produced from about 1855 to 1865. Some people call them gutta-percha cases but
that is not a correct term, better being "thermoplastic case" or, as we use, a
"Union Case". Littlefield, Parsons & Co. was one such case manufacturers. A
mixture of shellac and wood fibers were pressed into a steel mold. And to think
we thought "plastics" were new in the 1950s, look at the quality they achieved
in the 1850s!
