|A 1/6th plate, hand-tinted ambrotype of a naked baby boy with one knitted bootee. A brass oval mount with chased inner edge, and an ornately tooled inner-frame. Housed in a plain, oxblood leather case which fastens with two hooks, lined with embossed, midnight blue lining, all in excellent condition.|
condition: The blue wash in the background above the baby's head has been rather crudely applied, although the tinting of the baby's skin is quite delicate and subtle.
