    If the image is actually on glass, it would be called an ambrotype.

    On the left side (as viewed) there appears to be a vertical line showing the edge of the image. This makes your image appear to be a tintype.

    Two photos in one case sounds good to me!

    If you can, pls add the other photo to this posting-- I always like looking at antique images.
