Fantastic 1870's California Cowboy Cdv Photograph Armed W/ Revolver Photo For Sale
Fantastic and original, 1870's, CDV Photograph of a young and handsome California Cowboy with a revolver at his belt and a rifle in his hand. This simply amazing, Western Americana Albumen CDV Photo measures approx. 2 1/4" by 3 5/8" and is mounted on its original, photographer's card mount (overall size of mount is 2 1/2" by 3 13/16" - slightly trimmed at the bottom edge - not affecting the photograph). The back of the Card Mount features an elaborate backstamp of a San Francisco Photographer that appears to be named John C. Julius and includes a printed portrait of the Photographer!!
The Photo depicts the Cowboy in a photographer's studio seated on a "prop" rock and comfortably leaning on his right elbow. He wears a wide brimmed hat, leather boots and a draw string shirt with a neckerchief tied at the collar. At his belt we see the butt of a revolver in a holster and in his right hand he holds the barrel of a rifle that appears to be a carbine. There is NO question that this fellow is the "real thing" - a California Cowboy and NOT an Eastern "dude" wearing and carrying props provided by the photographer. Please see the numerous close-ups below as they leave no doubt that this is a "real" California Cowboy!!
This outstanding, Western Americana / Double Armed California Cowboy CDV Photo is in very good to excellent condition. The Photo itself is clean and crisp and exhibits sharp focus, strong contrast and rich tonality. The Card Mount is slightly trimmed at the bottom edge and, for some reason, someone a very long time ago has inked over the name and address of the photographer on the back of the mount. Luckily the photographer's San Francisco address is still discernible however his name is partially obscured.
A very rare and simply fantastic, 1870’s CDV Photograph of a young and handsome, Double Armed California Cowboy and a fantastic addition to any collection!!!
