This is a simply marvelous larger format portrait photograph of Max Immelmann. The photograph measures 7 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ and is uniquely mounted in a period frame that would have hung from a wall and measures 12″ x 8 1/4.” The photograph is an original of one of Immelmann’s most-popular Sanke Cards ever produced. It has him standing wearing a bayonet, Iron Cross 1st Class, Prussian Pilot Badge, and a five-place medal bar. He is also holding his visor cap in his hands. This photo was most likely given to a family member or friend as it is signed in black on the obverse: “Max Dez. 1915.” This was taken the month before he received the PLM. The portrait photograph is placed in the frame in a way that creates a shadow box effect. The frame, as mentioned previously, is a period type and the wood is brown. Between the brown molding and the gilt trim of the shadow box is a brown velvet that adds to the distinctive look of the frame.
