    Studio Photo of an NCO with unusual props - a book and flowers, circa early 1900s.

    Studio Photo of an NCO with unusual props - a book and flowers, circa early 1900s.

    Measures approx. 3 " x 5 ". Apparently not a stranger to vanity, the officer displays an uncommon watch fob hanging out of his breast pocket that consists of a length of plain chain links alternating with a length of solid metal at regular intervals. His belt buckle appears to be standard issue for Russian infantry units.

    Good condition, although there is a crease that runs from the bottom of the picture to about his right hand and another crease that runs along the very bottom about 3/8" from the edge. There is a third crease in the bottom right hand corner. In spite of these and some very minor scuffing at the edges and age staining on the verso, nothing adversely affects the main focal area of the portrait.

    Very informative photo provides excellent detail of the sergeant's uniform. While the flowers may have been the photographer's idea, in many countries the presence of a book in a portrait photo was traditionally taken as an indication that the sitter was able to read and write.
