This is an ambrotype (I think) in case of a serious, yet stylish young lady, ca. 1870. Image is quite clear. She is wearing a jaunty hat, gold earrings, and a wild fringed scarf. The scarf looks as though it has been tinted a bit. Alas, she is unidentified and has a rather forlorn expression. Purchased in England. The case has appropriate age related wear, but still a great shabby chic look. Very nice gold matting. Measures 3.25 inches wide, and a little over 3.5 inches tall.
