I love the tinting on this one-- it is exceptionally well done.

This 1850s ambrotype shows a boy in a green dress and frilly white underneath!

The image is a NINTH plate.

Boys in dresses was common in 19th century images and continued well into the 20th century.

    Thanks rob. I have found that quality ambrotypes are starting to receive a lot of attention from foks who used to be strict daguerreotype collectors. Tinted ambrotypes are very popular!
