1/6 Plate-Man reading newspaper

One of the nicest ambrotypes I have ever found; a handsome man contemplating what is new in the newspaper. He sits rather confident next to a beautifully tinted lavender tablecloth. An editor, a writer for the this daily news source? or simply looking for a job in the classifies? At any rate, this is an incredible quality ambro for your collection & rests inside a Berg 3-81 (S) Union case in mint condition. $495

1/6 Plate-Distinguished Gentleman
1/6 Plate-Distinguished Gentleman

Extremely wealthy and distinguished looking gentleman in the finest quality clothing of the period. He melts right into the black background with a perfectly exposed glass plate. Tinted cheeks and cleft in the chin, I am sure this man was a lady killer during his time. As this businessman's gaze remains approachable, he looks highly confident and debonaire. Protecting this wonderful ambrotype is an unusual square cornered full case not pictured in Berg. $325

1/9 Plate-Religious man w/ cross

Very interesting 1/9 plate ambro of a dapper looking young man with gold cross painted under his larger sized tie. He sports some awesome locks and tinting has been added to each side of his goatee. I find the Union case Berg3-322 with perfect cross-like motif a great housing for this "Man of God". Case in very nice condition, the exterior could use a little cleaning. $145

1/9 Plate-A stunning woman
1/9 Plate-A stunning woman

A truly stunning woman decked out in a fantastic outfit including an rather unusual hat with hanging scarf and large ragamuffin sleeved dress. Gilt has been applied to her belt and jewelry plate. I love the lighting, not only on her beautiful features, but on the dress and ornate chair behind her shoulder. The 1/9 plate ruby ambro is protected by a 1-190 The Blind Begger (C) Union case with only a very tiny hairline near the clasp. $185

I do not know why, but every time I view this ambro I cannot get Robert Downey Jr. out of my mind, especially in his portrayal of "Sherlock Holmes." Here this dapper man with goatee stares off camera with a pensive look on his face. The high quality of this ruby ambro can be attributed to the camera operator. Added to a nice full paper over wood case with old repaired hinge. $90

1/4 Plate-A striking couple
1/4 Plate-A striking couple

The magnificent quality quarter plate image was most likely taken on this couples wedding day. She, an incredible beauty and he, a strong handsome figure, they both are easy on the eyes. I do not find too many images of this time where a man places his arm around his wife, not a common practice makes this image more rare. I love the contrast of masculine and feminine captured on the glass of this ambrotype. A super full leatherette case with super embossed velvet pad completes this package. $275

Dapper, confident & affluent are the first words that come to mind when I view this distinguished gentleman. He is wonderfully posed in a simple seated position and with his high collar shirt, bow tie, vest and watch fob well displayed. A strong composition with nice lighting helps to accentuate this gentleman's likeness into a fine portrait. An unusual green velvet pad is adjacent to this ambro and is held by a nice full leatherette case with original hinge. $145
