Sixth-Plate Tintype (1855 - 1865), 19th century portrait, vintage case, 2.75 x 3.25. 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 is a half-length portrait of a young soldier, clad in traditional military garb and kepi. The image is enhanced with pink-tinted cheeks and gold-tinted buttons, and is bordered by an embellished gold frame. The interior of the front cover is lined in intricately-emblazoned yellow velvet. The case is attached at the hinges and bears the original, still-functioning closure clasp.

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