Josef Picek, Jičín, late 1870s - early 1880s
entry number: cdv.2010.01

Portrait of an Austro-Hungarian Feldwebel (infantry sergeant) proudly posing, with his sword and kepi, in a lavishly furnished neo-baroque studio. Probably from the late 1870s or early 1880s (t.p.q. the 1876 prize on the back of the card).

My thanks go to josefnovak33 for the translation of the Czech inscription on the verso and to wraith 42 for identifying the soldier`s rank.
