A half plate ambrotype is 5.5" x 4.5". The 4 children are well dressed and nicely posed by the photographer. All 3 young ladies wear off the shoulder dresses with the little ones showing off their lace pantaloons. Nice contrast if slightly dark. The boy and his sister on the right are not as crisp as the teenager and her little sister. They probably moved just a bit during the exposure. The ambro is in fine condition but there is some crackling visible if the plate is tilted a certain way. Black paint has been newly applied to the reverse to minimize that. Only the bottom half of the plain leather case remains. All in all a lovely looking ambrotype!
