Glass plate negative of a full length portrait of Prince Victor of Hohenlohe-Langenburg standing, facing towards the camera. He turns his head three-quarters to the right and gazes ahead, away from the camera. He stands beside a small side table. He holds a top hat in his left hand and an umbrella in his right hand.

The glass plate negative has been photographed showing the coated side and therefore the image appears laterally reversed. A print from this negative exists in the Collection, RCIN 2907571.
