1/6 Plate-A boy with a doll

A boy is captured sitting on the rear of a photographers posing chair and holding a nice contrasting doll. Boys of the era wore similar dresses as girls, however, it is rare to find one of them holding a doll. I love the simplicity of this image with unusual vignetted frame at the top of the image. A striking tintype in nice condition, good sharpness and unique subject matter for a male child. $95
