Coming of Age II

Austrian boy with very high collar & cigarette. CDV. Personal Collection.

A thick late period CDV of a dapper Austrian boy. He’s wearing a high collar and white tie that together elongate his silhouette. His jacket’s wrinkled but his gentlemanly appearance is complete with a straw boater hat, buttonhole jewelry chain and a cane tucked on his arm.

The backdrop is plain and looks like a painted room corner.

This card reminds me of the German one.

Photographer: Atelier Tegeffhoff. Inh. F. Jelinek. Vienna. Austo-Hungarian Empire.
