Original 1870s CDV photo of a young Maori man wearing a crown style headdress with feathers. I'm unable to tell if he has facial tattoos or not..
But I don't believe so. Photographer / publisher was David Alexander De Maus, of Port Chalmers, New Zealand.
The CDV is in overall very good antique condition. It appears the sides of the mount have been slightly trimmed, but the image has not been affected by this. The mount dimensions are a bit under 4" x 2.5".The item "RARE Antique 1800s Photo Young Maori New Zealand Photographer De Maus / Tattoos" is in sale since Sunday, December 27, 2020.
