Item details

Vintage from the 19th century

Fantastic, original hidden mother photo of a baby and his/her shrouded Mother.
Tintype without mat or photographer's ID. One of a kind.
2" x 3" cropped corners as shown.
Exceptionally creepy and foreboding.

Every detail of this photo is apparent, including the pattern of the rug slumped over the Mother's head.
I guess we could just as easily call these unruly children photos as we do "hidden mother" photos.
I've scanned this several times to get it as lint free as possible. The only lint mark/spot visible to the naked eye is the small one to the direct left of the subject. If a spot of lint is in one photo but not another, it's safe to assume it does not really exist. This image is
very dark, which adds to the difficulty in getting a clean scan AND it's general oddness, so overall, I think it is worth it to get some transient lint on the scan.

Back is plain without marks.
Shipping includes insurance and tracking.
