Product Description

PD133: 1842/3 Pre-Mortem of Milburn Eddy – Rare & Early Plumbe Oct 22 Patent Mat + Rare & Early Corduan NY Hallmark 6th Plt In a Plain, Early Case with Green Silk Pad:

Rare & early dag 1842 Plumbe patent dag of a very sickly man who died 1-2 years after this dag was taken. Maybe he had just found out that he only had so much time left in this world (Consumption?) and decided to have himself immortalised for his family so he chose to have this likeness taken in 1842. Mr Eddy set an unusual pose as he looked off towards the bottom right as if he were staring into death’s door. Id’d through a vintage inscription that reads “Milburn Eddy Born May 28-1808 Died April 1844 at Adams NY ST 6”
