This is a great example of an early style of photograph. I'm not sure if it is an ambrotype or a daguerreotype as I haven't taken it out of it's case but I'm leaning towards ambrotype. It shows an educated man sitting at a table (he is pictured with a book) and I have to mention his amazing beard - it goes to point where his necktie would be! He also has some cute curls over his ears :)

This photograph is presented in a dark brown leather case with a claret debossed velvet protective inner on the left hand side - the photograph is on the right. The gold work around the photograph side is gorgeous - very detailed and delicate. The case has some wear to it and the clasp that holds the two sides together is loose but these don't detract from the item.

The case measures 16cm x 9cm (6 1/2in x 3 1/2 in) and the photograph is half of that.

Thanks for looking.
