Woman holding a book.

Woman with book,gold chain

This is a very small tintype maybe only an inch from side to side.The woman holds a book or photo album in her lap probably given to her by the photographer to prop her hands on.Her cheeks and scarf are lightly colored and her chain is touched up in gold leaf.Unfortunately some kind of adhesive attached to this long ago,still the overall detail in this photograph is wonderful.
