This is a collectible antique cased ambrotype type showing a Victorian family group outside in a paddock
It is very difficult to tell if this is actually an ambrotyope or a cased tin type as the case itself is still firmly sealed. I would date this collectible item to about 1890-1900 The clothing also suggests this date.

Image condition.
The image is in good condition for its age,but does show bronzing of the silver halides; due to age and processing.There is indication of mold and spotting possibly on the inner side of the glass or the image itself. I previously thought it could be a it be a tintype not an ambrotype (on glass), .particularly as the whole case feels fairly lightweight, suggesting it to be a tintype rather than a glass ambrotype which would be bit heavier,and likely to be in a velvet lined case.Perhaps this was for a lower budget clientele

Outer case condition.
The brass decorative matt is in excellent condition with no sign of corrosion and the outer glass is not cracked.The outer border of the case, which is gold stamped red paper does show signs of rubbing. At the rear the paper casing does have mold spots, commensurate with age and the sealed edges are a little friable.One corner has worn badly but the image is still sealed and intact.
Overall the case measures 3-1/4insx 3-3/4ins (8.2cm x 9.5cm) and is a fraction over 1/4ins thick (5mm)

Generally the item is in good antique condition for approximately 110 years old and the faults described are commensurate with age and materials.This antique photograph would be perfect decorating your period home,or as an addition to your collection.
