RARE One Of A Kind 1860s CDV Photo Georgia Civil War Confederate GENERAL DOLES
Original CDV of CSA Brig General George Pierce Doles, 4th Georgia Infantry. At the outbreak of the war he was Captain of a Georgia militia unit, "Baldwin's Blues".. I think this CDV could be of a daguerreotype showing him wearing that uniform, or possibly even early war. A super rare, and probably one of a kind image in any case!
CDV published by Paradise & Cook, New York. This CDV was originally inside of an album with several Civil War figures in it, including several other Georgia Confederates and a mix of both civilian and military with Georgia and New York backmarks.
My guess is that the family who owned this album lived in New York and had Georgia connections; the original daguerreotype was probably in their possession, and they took it to P&C to have this CDV made of it. Very good antique condition overall with light aging, stains, couple of rounded or slightly clipped top corner tips. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Photographic Images\Photographs". The seller is "jack_mord" and is located in this country: US.
This item can be shipped to United States.
