    Army Private with Tercentenary Medal Poses with Friends or Relatives.

    Army Private with Tercentenary Medal Poses with Friends or Relatives.

    Sized 4 ' by 6 3/8". Razorenov studio in St. Petersburg. Seated private strikes a vaguely Napoleonic pose while three friends surround him. Ribbon of Romanov Tercentenary medal registers as almost completely black. Man on right has the look of someone wearing a false beard. Studio name impressed into the mat board at bottom. Reverse bears ornate studio logo and informs the viewer that the studio had two branches, one in St. Petersburg and one at Peterhof in the suburbs. Old hinge across the top from where the picture was once mounted in an album.

    Excellent condition.

    We have had some experience with "old school" darkroom technology and it seems that the photographer retouched his negative to make both the medal ribbon and the friend's beard appear darker.
