Epee master; France, 1899

Not an imposing figure, but…

 

This cabinet card bears the inscription “Marseille 28 Juin 1899—A mes cher Parents souvenir affectueux, Clovis-Maurel”.

Since this fencing master did not include his surname in the dedication to his parents, we do not know who he was. But we like his epee:
