This lovely tintype features an embossed union case with an ornate scene of two birds in a hoop surrounded by a frame with a leaf design and ornate scroll work. Both the front and back of the case have the same design. The case features a small hook closure.
The tin type is of two woman (a mother and daughter?). The younger is standing with her hand on the older woman's shoulder. There is a simple rounded edge gold-tone frame around the picture with an embossed outer frame on the edges.
The case measures 3 1/8 x 3 1/4" x 5/8" deep.
This Victorian piece is in very good condition. The hinges are tight and the hook is in good working order. The picture is bright and flawless.
