Title Carte de visite, Seaforth Highlander (officer)
Nationality Scottish
Period c 1890

Well detailed portrait of a young officer in full dress, complete with bonnet, broadsword and dirk. Note the belt plate details for the regimental insignia and the plaid brooch. Probably taken prior to overseas posting, possibly to India since the other cartes de visite from the same source are all Indian.

The helmet arrived the day before yesterday and I had a look at it today and everything looks perfect. You packed it up very well indeed. ... I've never seen him so thrilled with a gift!

Good news, my friend, the boot knife has arrived safe and sound. This example will more than fill my collection need.
