    Found this tintype several weekends ago at a yard sale. Unfortunately the person I bought this from didn't have any information on this picture, she said she found it among her mother's estate. It is large tintype around
    7"x 9" with painted embellishments ( see close ups ).

      Nice painted tintype. Based on the size, painting and clothing I would say it is 1880s.

      Love the painted embellishments. I have several hand-coloured photos myself. Love them.

      I'll save you some time and expense-- would you like to know the current market value?

      Cowan's auctions will give you an expert estimate for free.

      Most of these late 19th century painted tintypes will go in the range of about $25- $100.

      The biggest factor in that range is subjective opinion-- beautiful women, handsome men and cute children tend to push the high end. Additionally period framing will add to the value.

      I would expect yours to be on the lower end of that estimate.

      Thanks for sharing,

      Scott
