#376 - Cadwalader Ringgold Signed Group Lot Estimate: $200+

Officer in the United States Navy (1802-1867) who served in the United States Exploring Expedition, later headed an expedition to the Northwest and, after initially retiring, returned to service during the Civil War. Two items: a 2.25 x 4 carte-de-visite bust-length portrait of Cadwalader Ringgold published by Brady's of New York, signed and inscribed on the reverse in ink, "For Mrs. Stark, with the compliments of her friend, Commodore Ringgold, N. York, 12 Jany 1864"; and a personal calling card belonging to "Commodore Ringgold," 3.5 x 1.75, which bears a handwritten note: "…takes pleasure presenting the enclosed to his good friend Mrs. Stark. He breakfasted with the Senator this morning and was truly glad to learn Mrs. Stark and family are well…12. Jany 1864." In overall very good to fine condition, with the visiting card showing soiling, light creasing, and loss to the upper left corner tip; the photo is fine.
