Wonderful ambrotype for your dollhouse from the 1950's! The woman is lovely in this photograph which is hand colored. Usually the women look somewhat dour but she is hauntingly beautiful. "The ambrotype was introduced in the 1850s. During the 1860s it was superseded by the tintype, a similar photograph on thin black-lacquered iron, hard to distinguish from an ambrotype if under glass." It has the original card in the back from the gallery where it was created in Boston. Perfect size for the antique dollhouse.
