Gem Tintype (1855 - 1865), 19th century portraits, vintage Union Case, .25 x 1. 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.

Featured within this vintage case are four gem portraits of a mother, father and two small boys. The images are all bust-length, and all are enhanced with tinted-pink cheeks. Each picture is bordered by an embellished gold oval frame. The interior of the front cover is lined in yellow, floral-emblazoned velvet. Although the front cover is separated at the hinge, the original closure clasp remains intact and functioning.

A separated front cover and the expected wear to the case, otherwise fine condition.
