Full case

Glued glass (1855-1857)

 

Man wearing a white coat and 2 earrings. He was probably
a sailor who'd been around the world or across the equator.

3 different mats, from 3 different eras. One is by:
"Holmes, Booth & Haydens, Superfine - Waterbury Conn No 15."
The case is older. The photo was rehoused using different parts.
