Quarter-Plate Ambrotype (1855 - 1865), 19th century family portrait, in vintage case, 3.25 x 4.25. 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.

Featured here is a 19th century family portrait of five siblings, three boys and two girls, all clad in similar period clothing. Bordered with an ornate gold frame, the crystal clear image is encased under glass. A gorgeous red velvet lining adorns the interior of the front cover, which is completely intact at the the hinge. Case also bears original latch closure. 

Moderate separation at the hinge, otherwise fine condition.
