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.
The image outside of the case showing flaking from the back of the image
The ambrotype with its black paint removed.
Repainted and ready to go back under its case
1/9 plate Ruby Ambrotype
Somber but beautiful young woman photographed wearing a dark Crinoline(Hoop Skirt)
Ambrotype 1/6 plate
Beautiful crisp image of a Mother and Daughter.The little girl seems to be positioned on a table next to the Woman,her hand can be seen behind the girls neck holding her head steady for this portrait.
My title is just a guess…
I only found a partial cased image of a Ruby Ambrotype at this mornings flea market in Long Beach,California.The wood case it was resting in was damaged so I removed it from under the glass seal and photographed it alone.
Nice portrait of a mother and child
