Charming antique Civil War era black and white tintype photograph in original pressed paper over wood case measuring about 2-7/8" tall and 2-1/3" wide. Featuring an adorable little bald baby in short dress with skinny little legs stick out as shown. Fitted into an embossed gold metal frame with engraved velvet flanking the glass, case is hinged with a tiny swing latch closure.
Condition is lovely with light usage and age wear to the exterior case raised design and tintype - the hook will not quite slide into the loop (I was afraid to force it). Image is so sweet - lovely addition to any photograph collection or display!
