Help Dating Picture and Man

Mon Sep 23, 2019 10:45 am

I am hoping someone can help me. This is my first time using a forum! So please be gentle!

This is a photo of an original (sorry not the best, but all I have). Original has since disappeared somewhere in the family.
I am hoping to try and date it and the man in the picture - based on his clothing and type of picture. Nothing is known about him, other than it is from my Grandmothers side of the family, possibly a grandparent?

I have more to follow at some point.

It's very highly coloured, almost like a portrait. I'd guess at late 19th century - 1880's/90's, maybe for a special occasion. I'm curious about the blue objects on his left lapel; are they ribbons/badges? Are they the reason for the picture?

Thanks for the reply, I thought the blue ‘thing’ looked like a flower! But your suggestion gives me more to think about and another angle to research.
