This carte de visite photograph features an impeccably dressed adolescent boy. He is decked out in a three piece suit and has a pocket watch, walking stick, and long coat. This fashionista fellow looks like he walked off the pages of “Gentleman’s Quarterly”. The photographer of this exceptional CDV is Heinrich E. Herkner.  He operated a studio in the city of Gablonz, which is the German name for a city located in present day Czechoslovakia. The city is now named Jablonec.  SOLD

  1. He looks quite young to be an adolescent, so I’m guessing this occasion is for his 13th birthday.
