A 1/6th plate ambrotype of a beautiful woman in a dress with wide, pagoda sleeves, with fat-faced child in a check dress on her lap. The woman has a really lovely shine on her skin. The focus of the image is much sharper than the scan suggests.

A slightly tarnished, scallop-edged matt, and an ornately tooled inner-frame.

Housed in the remnants of a tooled black leather case (lid missing) with battered edges and peeling leather on the edge of the spine.

condition: The ambrotype itself has a beautiful yellow-grey tone, but the casing is in a very poor state.
