An antique gem tintype featuring a handsome man's portrait. His clothing features a collared white shirt and expertly tied bowtie. He wears a somber expression which was typical of tintypes back in the 1800s.
There are no markings on the brass frame telling us where this originated. This has a glass front.
Measuring 1 5/8" long by 1 1/4" wide we find a bit of wear to the frame on the edge. It is missing it's straight pin, which a jewelry could easily replace. We have reflected this in the price.
