Antique Tintype Civil War Photo in Gutta Percha Frame
This tintype portrait of a couple is in a hinged gutta percha case that is quite lovely, and in beautiful condition. It has a delightful floral pattern in deep color, with detailed gilt rope weave border front and back. The interior has a gilt wave border, and maroon floral patterned velvet lining. There is a light scratch on front, and normal wear around the hook closures. The photo itself features a couple, the woman with interesting hair, and rose tinted cheeks. There is some slight spotting to the glass, and oxidation to the matte and border. The case size is 3 5/8" x 4 5/8". * This tintype is worth it for the quality and condition of its elegant frame.
