Not often seen! To create an Ivorytype was a complicated process resulting in a hand-tinted photograph resembling a painting. In reality the photograph was stuck to the reverse of the glass. Various adhesives were used including wax, which is the case here. For more information please see “The American Ivorytype. (The Camera and the Pencil.)” printed in THE BRITISH JOURNAL OF PHOTOGRAPHY, August 5, 1864.

The full glass plate I’m offering here (8.5” x 6.5” or 21.6 cm x 16.5 cm) was created in the Photographic Gallery of Washington Lafayette Germon (W.L. Germon) at no. 702 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA. Please see the close up photo of the label.

The image is in excellent condition having just a tiny scratch to left of the sitter’s bonnet. The gilded frame is original to the photograph. The overall dimensions are 12” x 10”. (30.5 cm x 17 cm) FREE SHIPPING
