CIVIL WAR CARTE DE VISTE – CAVALRY OFFICER – BOSTON PHOTOGRAPHER:  This cavalry officer strikes a formal pose, clothed in his dress uniform frock coat with the gold bullion epaulets, and wearing his sabre belt over the officer’s red sash, with his officer’s cavalry sabre well displayed on his left hip.  I suspect this image was taken early in the Civil War given the dress uniform – by war’s end these uniforms were less common in the images, having been replaced by the more practical field grade uniforms.  The reverse of the CDV bears the name of the photographer, “J. W. Black, Washington Street, Boston”.  This CDV, measuring 4” by 2 3/8”, is in very good to excellent condition, with no edge wear or damage and no bends or damage to the corners.  (0348)  $150
