      Nice image-- love the cameo on the collar!

      Is the image itself on glass? If on glass it would be an ambrotype.

      it is on glass.

      I thought it had some appearances of being on glass. It would correctly be called an ambrotype. Ambrotypes were contemporaries of tintypes, produced in the US from about 1855- 1865.

      In the UK and other countries, ambrotypes were produced much later into the 19th century; however, I believe your image is from early production.

      Thanks for sharing!

      Glad to help out.

      I am always willing to share what I have learned in years of collecting and dealing in antique photographs.
