Ninth-Plate Tintype (1855 - early 1900s), 19th century portrait, vintage case, 2 x 2.5. 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.

Enclosed within this vintage case is a unique 19th century group portrait featuring a gentleman and two young ladies. The man and woman in the forefront appear to be holding musical instruments, while the woman standing behind them is resting her hand upon the other woman's shoulder. The image is bordered by an embellished gold frame. The interior of the front cover features a vine-like design emblazoned in a black velvet lining. The case is perfectly attached at the hinge and bears the original, still-functioning closure clasp.

In fine condition.
