Vintage glass negative from my large collection. This one from Nancy France of a woman looking through a pair of theater glasses at another woman on a stage or luxurious room in a house. This woman w glasses was part of a performing year round theater troupe in Nancy France. I was fortunate to acquire a large group of glass negatives from this theater group which one of the earliest theater troupes in France. They lived in Nancy France year round.

This glass neg has an unusual shape as you can see, this doesn't detract. Also this image will require a photo manipulation program as it is very light and will be very able to be printed(I have sucessfully done this) with some effort to the contrast.

For those not familiar with glass negatives they were made from late 1800s-1920s and Europe certainly had so many wonderful large plate cameras to work with so many are incredible with detail. There are imperfections with this method of photography so you will often see peeling by the edge of the glass plates where emulsion has come away but to me this adds interest to the print itself.

Any questions please ask as due to the difficulty to pack and ship these are not returnable.
I do combine glass negative shipping up to 5 per small box for $5.75 and 25 in a larger priority box.
Overseas shipping is possible and that will be $17.75 for a small flat rate priority box.
Any questions please convo. I will be listing many in the next weeks so if you see something you want and want to wait for a week to see if there are others, please pay via pay pal or reserve and when finished let me know and I will refund any overage on shipping via paypal back to you.


See close up for details. I often show a close up in high contrast but image is closer to second scan.
Shipping is $1.50 for unlimited small photos up to 5".

photos are securely mailed in sealed glassine envelopes with cardboard. I have been selling vintage photos online for 5 years and have customer service as my highest priority.

I do my best to sell clean perfect photos but often vintage photos have scrapbook on back or some dry paste and that often is unavoidable. I am an archivist as well so often will wash and blot dry photos if possible. Often I include a high contrast close up to see the details but image is closer to second image shown. I also do my best to describe every detail and if you have question still, then write. I am happy to respond.

thanks for shopping with Clancy's Classics
