$75.00 - Product is currently out of stock.

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.

Enclosed within this vintage case is a 19th century half-length portrait of a young man in a suit and tie, bordered by an embellished oval gold frame. Front cover is missing, and back panel features elaborate floral designs. One half of the original clasp closure is attached to the back panel.

In very good condition, with the front cover missing and moderate wear to the back panel.
