Antique Child Ambrotype In case 1851-1855.


This has been passed down in my mom's family for generations. I don't know who the child is but I wonder the story and marvel at the age and how it ended up with me. Itmeasures about 4x3.5x1 inch.The outside is black wood, inside red detailed velvet, with a thick glass covering the photo and a detailed brass metal frame interior.The hinges, snap closure, and exterior condition is excellent.The red velvet padded interior is also in excellent condition.The glass is unbroken, a little dirty, and the brass frame has corrosion.There is a crack in the case, doesn't effect the closure, see photo.Based on the most popular time period of ambrotypes, I would guess this is circa 1851 to 1855.


The support materials were glass and it isconsidered a “direct positive photograph.” A collodion wet plate process wasused. It was coated by hand, and theglass on the photo is rough so the edges also hand ground.


There does seem to be a slight hand tinting of the child's cheeks.


So special, thank you for shopping at Limbo!
