Large 1/4 plate size tin type or Ferrotype of three young ladies, probably sisters, dressed in their Victorian finery, with long lacy dresses, ostrich plumed hats and each carrying a parasol with the standing lady's open. The older two back ladies are wearing lockets, earrings and bracelets. This is a beautiful example of early photography and costume during the Victorian era and rare to find one so elegant with the sweet smiling expressions on thier lovely faces. The tintype measures 4 3/4" tall and a little over 3.5" wide. It is very clear, has a little bending at the corners. but is in very good vintage condition.
