Civil War Era Ambrotypes Man Wife Pinchbeck Matt Floral Frame Hinged Broken Case
Here is a pair of antique civil war era ambrotype photographs, probably a husband and wife, in a hinged gutta percha case. There is a fancy pressed or chased pinchbeck foil matt between the ambrotypes and the glass covering them. Around the edge, on top of the glass, is a fancy floral gold colored metal frame. All is set into the hinged case from which a large corner is broken, including part of the catch which is missing from the broken side. A previous owner tried to glue it together without much success as can be seen in our pictures. The case measures 3" x 2.5" x about 1" thick. Photos are 2" x 1.5". Woman's photo is easier to see than the man's.
