Resplendent Young Woman

DSCF5751

1/6 plate Ambrotype

Resplendent young woman wearing lace mitts, bonnet with colored flowers, and an impressive array of gold jewelry.

This was found with the paint on the back of the image falling off.I used a razor to clean the rest off and then repainted the back of the glass with new coat of black enamel paint the work made a big difference.
