Some surface wear from age - including a few spots and rub marks, but it's in mostly good condition. A few slight bends, but nothing too distracting. Has aged into a lovely reddish brown tone.
These make great decor, especially as autumn and halloween are coming. Also great for crafts and art projects, or for making your imaginary family tree!
About 3.5 by 2.5 inches.
What is a tintype? An early photograph, from the last half of the 1800s. Light sensitive emulsion coating a thin piece of metal. Unlike modern photographic processes, this process did not create a negative, meaning that every tintype is one of a kind, completely unique! Tintypes are an important part of photographic history - their relative inexpensiveness and sturdiness made them available to a wider audience, making photography the most democratic of art processes!
