Tinted child in Union case

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
