This tintype is in a patented CDV sized paper holder.

The image depicts an elderly woman wearing full black mourning garb-- to include mourning bonnet and black gloves.

The image probably dates from the early 1860s.

    Thanks pat, I appreciate your comments.

    I collect and deal in antique images-- I handle thousands of images a month and try to pick the most unusual that I can find.
