Frederick Jones of Walsall
A carte-de-visite portrait of a woman dressed in black, presumably a widow, surrounded by an apparition, presumably supposed to represent the spirit of her dead husband.
Photographed by Frederick Jones of Walsall in the West Midlands.
Condition: the print presents some spotting, most noticeably in the darker area of the woman’s dress and in the area of the dark curtain in the background; there are also a few other small imperfections but the print is otherwise in fine condition, with good tonal range. The mount is in excellent condition, with crisp edges and sharp corners.
