1/6 Plate- Seated young woman

This very delicate, nicely tinted ambrotype is from Australia, which shares its similarity to ambros made in England during the 1850's. A lovely redhead with freckles and fair skin poses beside a highly tinted tablecloth and ornate studio chair. A beautiful young woman wears an off the shoulder dress with tasteful blueish-green tinting. She is protected by a Union Case with a few stains to the outside of the housing and a few small chips.

1/6 Plate-Tinted child in chair

A cherub of a child is captured on this ruby ambrotype. Not only is this a fantastic, relaxed posed of a child sitting in a prop chair, but the tinting on her dress is beautifully executed. A few mat abrasions & a small scratch to the center-right are the only imperfections to the glass plate. The ambro is housed appropriately inside the Berg case 1-104 (C) "The Calmady of Children" by engraver H.W. Hayden. There is one spot on the back of the case & a few small chips on the corners. $200
