Ninth-Plate Ambrotype (1855 - 1865), 19th century portrait, vintage 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.

Presented is a 19th century half-length portrait of what appears to be a young soldier with pink-tinted cheeks, clad in a military uniform and kepi. The image is bordered in a lavishly embellished gold frame, and the interior of the front cover is lined in an intricately emblazoned red velvet fabric. Vintage case is in tact at the hinge and bears the original, still-functioning closure clasp.

In fine condition, with the expected wear to the exterior of the case.
