Civil War Soldier Tintype (1855 - early 1900s), 19th century portrait, vintage case, 1.25 x 1.5. A tintype photograph was created by utilizing a sheet of iron coated with enamel or a dark lacquer. Through this application, a direct positive could be made, supporting the process of photographic emulsion. Much like their predecessors, tintypes were initially made in photography studios, but quickly became mobile; it wasn't uncommon to see photographers in booths, open air markets at carnivals and fairs creating these images on the spot. This was made possible because the lacquered iron sheet did not require drying, making it possible to develop and deliver a finished image minutes after it was taken.

Presented within this vintage case is a unique, bust-length portrait of a young Civil War soldier, donning a military jacket and kepi. A smaller tintype, the image is matted and bordered by an elegant gold frame. Further framing the image are the engraved words, "Stroud's Ambrotypes Norristown / Patent July 4th & 11th 1854." The front interior cover is lined in embellished red velvet, and the case bears the original, still-functioning closure clasp.

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