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

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.

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.

Just to let you know that the bayonet arrived safely this morning by Royal Mail. I am delighted with it and it will be put to very good use at some forthcoming events.
