Ninth-Plate Ambrotype (1855 - 1865), 19th century portrait, vintage Union Case, 2 x 2.5. Developed in 1851 by Frederick Scott Archer, ambrotype, or amphitype, hails from the Greek words "immortal" and "impression." These images were impressed on glass through a variant of the wet plate collodion process. They required shorter exposure times than daguerreotypes and were more affordable to manufacture, two factors which contributed to their rise in popularity before the advent of the carte de visite in the early 1860s.

Enclosed within this Union Case is a 19th century portrait of a seated man with pink-tinted cheeks, bordered by a floral-embellished oval gold frame. The interior of the front cover is lined in burgundy velvet and bears the words, "Anson / Broadway." Case is separated at the hinge, but still features the original, functioning closure clasp and cover (which is unmatched).

In very good condition, with the expected wear to the case and a separation at the hinge.
