1/6 plate tintype of gentleman TT164-5 Narrow-trimmed 1/4 plate tintype portrait of an elderly man posing at a photographer's table that has a photo album resting on it. There's a touch of tinting to his cheeks, as well as particularly beautiful lighting in this image. In near fine condition with excellent toning and contrast. $25.00 SOLD
1/6 plate tintype of woman with book TT165-5 Narrow-trimmed 1/4 plate tintype portrait of a woman posing in a photographer's studio with a book in hand. Note the ribbon tied around her neck as a decorative accent. There's some bubbling of, and loss to, the emulsion in the bottom half of this image. Else, in near fine condition with strong contrast. $23.00
1/6 plate tintype portrait of a girl TT196-5 1/6 plate studio tintype portrait of a very serious looking girl in a velvet trimmed plaid dress. I think that she's just trying her best not to move. There's a hint of blush to her cheeks. Fine condition with beautiful brown-grey toning and clarity. $20.00
1/6 plate wedding portrait tintype TT192-5 1/6 plate tintype portrait of a couple. This is most likely a betrothal or wedding portrait, and a very nice example of its kind. In fine, clean condition with strong contrast. $20.00
1/9 plate tintype portrait of a girl TT190-5 1/9 plate studio tintype portrait of a girl housed in a blind stamped cream colored paper sleeve. This is a remarkably mature "look" that this girl has with her numeous necklaces, the large earrings and that bow in her hair. I like her direct stare right into the camera, and the perfect example of a period photo album that she's resting her arm on. In fine condition with just a touch of soiling to the sleeve. $20.00
1/6 plate tintype of three sisters TT306-5 1/6 plate studio tintype portrait of three excellently posed women. Because of their strong physical resemblance I would say without a doubt that they're sisters. Some rubbing to lower half of plate, but still in fine condition with strong contrast and toning. $22.00
1/6 plate tintype portrait of a lady TT195-5 1/6 plate studio tintype portrait of a woman. This is a well posed image of a woman wearing a beautiful outfit composed of an elaborate hat, velvet jacket, striped scarf attached with a brooch, and leather gloves. There's a touch of pink tint to her cheeks. In fine, clean condition. $22.00
tintype of man holding hat TT171-5 1/6 plate tintype portrait of a tall, handsome young man posing in a photographer's studio with his hat in hand. At first glance it looks as if he has three feet! But that's the foot of the posing table or head brace behind him. In fine condition with excellent contrast. $20.00
1/9 plate tintype of young girl in paper sleeve TT172-5 Over-sized gem tintype portrait of a young girl housed in a decorated paper sleeve. The whole piece measures 2 3/4" high by 1 3/4" wide. Perhaps it was meant to be carried in a wallet. In fine condition. $15.00
tintype of young man holding luggage TT173-5 1/6 plate tintype portrait of a young man posing in a photographer’s studio with his suitcase in one hand, his hat on his head, and his jacket draped over his arm. He looks confidently into the camera as he faces the journey before him. Perhaps he’s off to college or moving away from home to start a new job and had this photo taken to commemorate this momentous event in his life. Some rubbing to image surface else near fine. Very special. $45.00
tintype of man tintype of woman TT174-5 Absolutely beautiful pair of 1/6 plate tintype portraits of a man and woman. These were found in an album "facing" each other and I have no doubt that this is a couple marking an engagement or wedding. I love the man's pose as he sits erect, squarely facing the camera. There's gorgeous light and toning to each image as well as excellent contrast allowing us to clearly see the details in their clothing and accessories. Both in fine condition. $32.00, the pair.
1/6 plate tintype portrait of a young man TT194-5 1/6 plate studio tintype portrait of a young man. There's beautiful toning and clarity in this portrait of a young man on the cusp of adulthood, posing confidently with his eyes on the future. A few light surface marks, else in fine condition. $20.00
tintype portrait of a man TT176-5 Narrow-trimmed 1/6 plate tintype portrait of a man. This is an interesting image with the sitter squarely facing the camera, his icy-blue eyes, that hat worn at an angle and his coat, which appears to be a size or two too large for him. In near fine condition with good toning and contrast. $25.00
full plate painted tintype of two children TT177-5 Truly special hand painted full plate tintype of what are most likely a young brother and sister. One often sees full plate tintypes that have had coloring applied to them. But in this image the photographer or "colorist" has used only a grey gouache to accent all the aspects of the children. Note the fine lines drawn in their hair and eyebrows, his collar, the lines emphasizing the details of the girls dress, and in particular those lines painted to outline the boys outfit resulting in an effect almost bordering on "solarization". It's intriguing to wonder whether the client paying for this image asked for this effect, so unique is it. But the finished image, whether intentional or not, is practically folk art. There's a 1/3 " band" around the plate edge from it being framed at one time. Else, in remarkably fine condition and a terrific addition to any collection. $225.00 SOLD
tintype of young woman TT178-5 1/6 plate tintype of a lovely,dark-eyed young woman wearing a crocheted coat and sitting with folded hands in a photographer's chair. There's a very calm demeanor about her. Hint of pink tint to her cheeks. In near fine condition with excellent contrast. $20.00
1/6 plate tintype potrait of a woman TT198-5 1/6 plate studio tintype portrait of a woman. I love the beautiful curve of the chair back, the tassle, and the painted background. In fine, clean condition with terrific contrast and toning. $25.00
1/6 plate tintype portrait of a young man TT302-5 1/6 plate studio tintype portrait. There's terrific lighting in this image of a handsome young man looking directly into the camera, posed in front of a painted backdrop. There's the slightest hint of a tint to his cheeks. In fine, clean condition . $22.00
1/6 plate vignetted tintype portrait of a girl in paper sleeve TT181-5 1/6 plate tintype portrait of a girl housed in a pink paper sleeve. The vignetting of this portrait has been very skillfully done as both the girls dress and the back ground have been painted over. Sleeve has additional leaf as a cover blind stamped "Hambleton's, Buffalo, NY". Sleeve very delicate at fold. Tintype in fine, clean condition. $25.00
1/6 plate tintype of girl with doll TT305-5 Charming 1/6 plate tintype of a dark eyed girl posing with a doll cradled in her arms. I like her direct gaze into the camera. However, she must have moved ever so slightly as the shutter was released as her face is not as sharply focused as her hands, but this doesn't detract from the overall appeal of this image. Note the large key protruding from the tassles under the seat cushion. This was used to adjust the angle, and/or height of the posing chair. Tiny bit of edge wear else, clean and umarked. $65.00
Half plate tintype of Dr. Alden T. Keene and Deacon Reuben Keene TT315-5 Terrific half plate tintype of two bearded, middle aged men. On the verso of this tintype is a piece of tape on which is written "Dr. Alden T. Keene and Deacon Reuben Keene". There's no doubt that they're brothers, very close in age. Photo circa 1870. In fine, clean condition with excellent toning. $65.00
1/6 plate tintype portrait of two women TT197-5 1/6 plate studio tintype portrait of two women. They're both wearing the same elaborately trimmed velvet jackets and striped scarves, with closely styled hats. In addition they each have a thin black ribbon around their necks. I like the pose. In fine, clean condition with strong contrast. $22.00
1/6 plate tintype portrait of a young man TT303-5 1/6 plate studio tintype portrait of a nice looking young man with remarkably bright and clear eyes. There's some light surface marking to the plate. Else, in fine and clean condition with terrific contrast and lighting. $24.00
Tintype portrait of a young man by Jordan Brothers, Syracuse, NY TT187-5 Very nice 1/9 plate tintype studio portrait of a young man housed in a blind stamped pale orange paper sleeve. Backmark of "Jordan Brothers, Syracuse, NY". In fine, clean condition. $18.00
1/6 plate tintype of mother and daughter TT188-5 1/6 plate studio portrait tintype of a mother and daughter. This image is a riot of patterns with their contrasting dresses, jewelry, hair ornaments and bows. In fine, clean condition with good strong contrast. $25.00
1/6 plate tintype wedding portrait TT189-5 1/6 plate tintype wedding portrait. In fine clean condition with strong contrast and toning. $24.00
