VICTORIAN Ambrotype of a Little Girl in Original (Broken) Case

Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….

AGE: C.1880 or so

ITEM: What I believe to be an ambrotype (image on glass with a very dark paper backing that is starting to crumble a bit). The subject of the photo is a young girl in a very plain plaid dress. She holds a small flower which has faded a bit. The glass piece is held in place in a gilt metal matte/frame and is set in its original case which has sadly broken at the seam.

CONDITION: While the original holder is completely split, the glass image looks good to me. I took photos of the piece without opening the image but when I discovered that there were red specs under the glass from the lining, I opened the piece to discern what I had (also, I cleaned just a touch). Dust particles most likely show in the image but the photos are pretty true to what you would be getting - a clean image that shows the appropriate age.

METAL CONTENT: Gilt flexible metal.

SIZE: The one side of the frame measures 3-1/4" x 3-3/4". Image size is 2-1/8" x 2-5/8".

FINAL COMMENTS: Ready for a new home!
