Major Chaplin, 3rd Dragoon Guards

Silhouettes of Mrs F Chaplin and Miss Chaplain, likely the Major’s wife and daughter, are also available.

Prior to photography, silhouettes were the easiest way of recording a person’s appearance. This set might record the group present at a country house party, a wedding, or other similar convivial occasion.

Condition: generally very good; some staining to right edge.
