This hand-coloured ambrotype is housed in a full case and features a husband and wife. The woman is wearing a coloured flowered bonnet with long ties and a gown as well as a white fringed shawl, and he is wearing a top hat, black bow tie and coat with a white waistcoat. He also wears a black cord-type chain with slide around his neck which is presumably attached to a watch or possibly an eyeglass in the pocket of his waistcoat. The case has a decorative velvet lining inside the front and is in good condition for age. The mat has minor staining but the image itself is very crisp and clear. Sixth plate. Case measures 3.5 ins (8.8cm) x 3.25 ins (8.2cm). This item appears in my book, “How the Watch was Worn, A Fashion for 500 Years” on page 96.
