I just added the below image to the Trombone History Timeline (19th Century—1st half). If you’re an actor and you’re having your portrait done, you’ll want it with a trombone, of course.
1837—Samuel Vale as Timotheus Trombone in “The Battle of Sedgemoor,” an engraving by G. Adcock, after a painting by R.W. Buss, portrays an actor with trombone. The actor, Samuel Vale, lived from 1797 to 1848 (see below image; public domain) (source: www.artstor.org).
