A fine half-length image of the portly former President, white-haired and, as in most of his late portraits, rather severe in appearance. Signed cartes of Fillmore are noticeably rare. The last examples recorded in American Book Prices Current were an 1867 image from the Shochet Collection (sale, Christie's, 20 May 1994, lot 29, $4,500) and a different image in the Jacobs Collection (sale, Sotheby's, 29 October 1996, lot 90, $6,000).
