An antique AMBROTYPE is also known as a COLLODION photo. They are a fairly rare find in the year 2004. This photography process was used from the period of 1850 until about 1860. This process involved using a glass negative and was short lived. In 1852 the method used was to make the negative into a positive. The photographer would bleach the negative and then frame it using a black fabric behind the glass or by using black varnish on the back of the glass plate. These COLLODION portraits were less expensive than the earlier DAGUERREOTYPES. However their life expectancy was quite short due to the fragile nature of glass. This portrait of a somber looking couple almost didn't make it through these 150 years. As you can see from the gallery photos it has 2 cracks in the glass. However, the frame and 'album' covering managed to keep the pieces of glass together. The frame is very ornate and made of metal which might be copper. The frame looks as if someone who did not know what they were doing has tried to clean the metal and there are many scratches on the glass photo. At one time this minature 'album' had a cover or another photo which was held together with a hook latch. You can still see the hole where the latch should be. I would love to know the story of this couple. Were they brother and sister or much more likely husband and wife? And whatever happened to them??
