She, the Book Lover - Antique Painted Full Plate Tintype Portrait - Vintage 1850's - Hand Painted

A softly studious looking young woman posed for this Tintype Photograph.
A woman of consequential thought,
Her right arm rests lightly on a book- perhaps a favorite ...
Her face - a study...

Sensibly educated and well read,
She's an Urban sophisticate...
From the 1850's.

Her wardrobe, jewelry and hairstyling
- all of handsome tho' restrained design-
denote a sensible and earnest background.

She : the first woman in her family to graduate from University.

A full Plate Tintype Painting.... 8" x 10".
(A "Full Plate " measures: 8 x 10 inches.)
Vintage 1850's - Hand Painted
A Tintype Photograph...
Artfully embellished with oils.
The Tin Plate is wrapped around an early (thin) masonite board.
The painting is unsigned.

In its original frame- a quietly flamboyant series of curvy sculptural ribs...
Painted Ebony.
Originally, the piece was matted with a gold matt...
This will, of course be included.
The Frame itself measures: 12" x 13".

The glass in the frame is original as well.
It is wavy in spots and even has some air bubbles.
Obviously an early piece of rolled glass.

There are some scratches around the head of the subject...
and there are some nicks in the painted ground as well.

There is, in short, wear to the piece.,..
I've done my best to show the painting and the condition
in the 5 pictures allotted to this listing.
Should you have any questions- or desire a specific
shot , please do let me know.
