This antique tintype (also know as a melainotype or ferrotype ) is from the last half of the 1800's- this tintype features a group of serious looking men posing, wearing suits, and looking fabulous! The scene behind them appears to be some sort of office setting. This photo is printed on a thin sheet of metal, and is of typical shape for tintypes of this era- worn, dark, mysterious, a bit blurry, atmospheric, a little bit of damage to the surface. In other words, ...magical! I have several other tintypes for sale, as seen in the second photo, just to show scale of the tintypes. This listing is for the one tintype show in the first picture. Please let me know if you have any questions!
