Sweet tintype of a 1860s Civil War era woman. Hers cheeks are tinted pink and the bow at her neck is tinted blue. Her hair is parted in the center and pulled severely to the back. Mounted in an embossed presentation card.

The tintype, also known as a ferrotype, was introduced in the United States in 1854. The image was produced on a metallic sheet (not, actually, tin) that was coated and sensitized just before use. An interesting note is that the print would come out reversed (as one sees oneself in a mirror).

• Actual tintype may be slightly lighter or darker than photo
• No bends
• Average age wear and surface spotting; actually looks better in person than my photo
• Circa 1860
• Presentation card measures approx 2 ½” x 3 3/4”
• Tintype measures approx 1 ½” x 2”
