    The little girl in this photograph is just beautiful! Based on her jewellry, she probably came from a well to do family as well.

    The image is a NINTH plate and housed in a full wood case. The photographer is identified as "B. Grammer, Artist" on the bottom right corner between the cover glass and mat. I just love it when photographers used these paper labels to mark their products.

    The image most likely dates from about 1854- 1863. It is identified and supposed to be out of Maryland, but I haven't had the time to research it yet.

    Reproduction of this image in any form is not authorized.

    Thanks for viewing.

      Thanks scott. Rarely do you see a smile in these early, extended exposure, photographs.

      In fact a smile in a daguerreotype or ambrotype will usually add significantly to value and collector interest.

      smile or not price value is small on most pics unless its someone of special interest
    5. scottvez scottvez, 9 years ago
      OK-- what is this photograph worth?

      Scott
    6. vanskyock24 vanskyock24, 9 years ago
      with the frame i sell for around 45.00 to 65.00 all the money is in the frame
    7. scottvez scottvez, 9 years ago
      Interesting-- I thought you said I only posted "buck or two photos"!

      By the way the 1/9th plate CASES are readily available in the $10- $20 range.

      lol i know wnated to see what you would say and the pic itself you can pic up for a buck or two just about anywhere
    9. scottvez scottvez, 9 years ago
      You would be hard pressed to find an IDd ambrotype of a cute girl with a photographer marked matting for a buck or two. There is a difference between this an a post CW loose tintype.

      By the way, if she were smiling the price would probably double.
