A very creepy looking image of a mother and her three children. The mother's face is softly out of focus, but the three children all have stern looks and strangely stern looking eyes, probably due to blinking or looking around during the long exposure. The background is plain - a recently infolded sheet or backdrop. An excellent prop or piece of decor for your halloween haunted house! Surface is a bit scratched and there are some minor bends to the metal.

These make great decor, and add a distinctive antique intrigue to crafts and art projects, or for making your imaginary family tree!

About 4 inches by 3 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!
