This is the nicest framed, tintype photo I've had the pleasure of owning. From the mid 1800's. It's larger than most, measuring 3 by 3&1/2 inches (frame size). The outside, embossed leather case is near perfect, with the original latch. Inside, too, is is near perfect. The velvet fabric on the lid has retained its bright red, gold and blue colors. There are no tears or stains. The gold colored, tin frame is beautiful. The glass cover have no scratches. The tin type photo depicts a stern looking couple in fancy dress. It's sharp, and like the case, has no damage. True collector quality.
