This is a wonderful antique tintype in an elaborate gold toned frame under glass and then placed in daguerreotype leather like case adorned by embossed intertwining vines. The image of this cheerful youngster is crisp with the inside of the cover lined in slightly faded red velvet with the case hook and eye clasp intact, excellent working condition. This exquisite bit of history dates back to when the first experiments in photography were explored and captures the detailed images of times gone by.
This excellent quality tintype weighs 3.4 ounces and the closed case measures 3 ½ inches by 3 ¼ inches and is ½ inch thick. The case is in very good condition with no nicks or scuffs and the fabric hinge is undamaged.
