Sixth Plate Cased Images of Well Dressed Couples, Lot of 4

Lot of 4 sixth plate ambrotypes of neatly presented couples. The men wear dark suits with thoughtful details including a boutonniere, pocket watch chain, and plaid waistcoat, while the women wear tasteful dresses, accessorized with lace collars, long gold necklaces, ribbons, and a nosegay. An image of particular note features a woman resting her hand affectionately on her husband's knee, with his hand covering hers. She leans into him slightly, and his body is angled towards her, rather than the photographer. All housed in pressed paper cases, three of which are full.


Some plates with scratching and spotting. One full case separated at spine.

Estimate: $200 - $400
