Antique Tin Type Cabinet Pocket Photo Civil War 1800s
This Tin Type Pocket Photo does show fading but the image still shows through. It is a young adult woman. The front of the case is missing and the oval metal piece that frames the woman has pulled away from the case. The interesting part is the writing on the back which is smudged from moisture and is hard to read. Some of the words that can be read appear to read Wilson, Brown, Major Van **ottuis Mother. Neat research project for someone.

Tintype - Little Boy Holding Apple Or Ball - C.1860's.
1/6 plate. Wonderful image of a handsome little boy holding either an apple or a ball. He is wearing a great suit. The tintype is in a paper holder that is printed, not embossed. The image contrast is somewhere in between the lighter and darker levels represented here. Condition of the tintype is good with modest wear to the surface. When held at an angle to the light you can see what look like several vertical striations in the surface coating. Very nice piece.
1/6 plate. Nice image of little girl in her fur-trimmed coat. Winter backdrop. Looks like she might have on a ribbon of some kind over her shoulder. Condition is good. Minimal wear, but some gentle bends plus a corner crease.
1/6 plate. Nice image, but just not sure what these two guys are in uniform for. The shirt design reminds me of firemen, but not sure. Could be street car conductors. Nice little details in the fobs and piping. Condition is overall good with modest wear and few modest scratches.

This is a small tintype measuring 2 H x 1-1/2 W. The portrait is of a young gentleman. When the frame and the case are added to the photo the measurement becomes 3-1/4 W x 3-5/8 H. The tintype is black and white but the lips and cheeks have been hand-tinted a pale pink. There is a layer of glass directly over the tintype. The glass over the photo is quite dirty on the inside. That accounts for the many spots that appear in the photo shown. The spots are not on the tintype itself. I decided that it would be better if the buyer removed the glass and gold matt from the album case for cleaning. The photo is in good condition with a slightly dulled area behind the young gentleman. On top of the glass is a simply decorated matt of a thin layer of a metal which appears to be gold plating. If not gold than possibly brass but it is plated. The plating has chipped in a few places as shown in the photo. There is a narrow ornate frame which also appears to be a thin sheet of embossed gold color metal. The photo, matt and frame are inserted into the back part of the case (see photos). There is a lid to the case but it is unattached from the photo. I read other tintype listings and I saw a few where the seller had repaired the front and back separation. The side hook clasp is still on the right side of the case. The side where the knob for the clasp should be is missing. This tintype is more than 100 years old and appears to be in good condition. I could find no studio or photographer marks.
This is a small tintype measuring 2 H x 1-1/2 W. It , it's matt and frame all appear to be in excellent condition. The portrait is of a bearded man. The tintype is matted with an ornate thin layer of a metal which appears to be copper. Glass is over the photo and the matt. The glass looks as if someone has tried to clean the inside of it with a tissue. There are little pieces of white lint clinging to the underside of the glass,which can be seen with the naked eye. The photo, glass and matt are inside of an ornate frame which again appears to be a thin sheet of embossed copper. The edges of the frame are folded over onto the back of the photo about 1/4 . There are no studio or photographer marks that I could find.
3 Sequential Antique Tintypes Of Same Man And Family
This set of 3 tintypes is unique in that they all 3 have the same man in each picture and each picture was taken at a different period in his adult life. These are unframed tintypes which are in very excellent condition. The first photo is the youngest picture of the gentleman. He is alone and standing before a studio backdrop with pedestal and bench props in what looks like a park or a patio setting. This photo measures 2-1/8 W x 3-3/8 H. It is a rectangle with the 2 left corners clipped off and a very slight ripple in the upper right corner where it may have been folded down at one time to fit a frame. It has some very minor scratches but is in very good condition for being over 100 years old! The next picture shows the young man standing next to a seated young woman. The studio backdrop and props seem to represent a parlor. The woman has on a very ornate hat and what appears to be a ring on her left ring finger. She seems to be wearing a glove on her right hand. This tintype measures 2-7/16 W x 3-1/2 H. This photo is a rectangle and has the 2 left corners rounded off. This photo has a few more scratches than the others but is still in very, very good condition. The third photo has the man, looking older, sitting in a chair holding his hat in his left hand and possibly a pipe in his right hand. There are 2 younger men standing behind and to each side of the older man. The man on the right holds what looks to be a cigar? The man on the right looks to be the youngest of the group. These might be the man's sons, but that is just a guess. This tintype measures 2-3/8 W x 3-7/17 H. It has all of it's corners. This photo is in excellent condition. There are a few rust spot on the lower edge which does not effect the photo. These tintypes are 100+ years old. I could find no studio or photographer marks.
Wonderful 1/6 plate of a peddler. Over his shoulder is a box on a strap. He is holding a walking stick. Note the patterned scarf. The tintype has a paper backing with the name Julius Laeke . Condition is excellent with just modest surface wear. No bends, folds or creases.
Tintype Of U.s. Sailor - Civil War Or Shortly After.
We are not experts on Civil War uniforms, but believe this to be a Union sailor from the Civil War. Tinted cheeks. This 1/6 plate tintype is still sealed inside its paper frame. The paper frame has been trimmed. Image is in pretty good shape. The surface has a slight haze to it.
Superb 1/6 plate of a young boy and his snare drum. Pristine condition in a paper frame which must have been protected in an album. It is not glued into the frame. Imprint on back of paper appears to say Frede Photo Gallery. Excellent contrast and particularly sharp.
Compelling 1/6 plate of a man who looks like he came from a factory to have his photo taken. He looks reasonably well groomed, but you can see the fatique in his eyes. There is slight tinting to his cheeks. Condition is excellent.
Superb image on a 1/6 plate (2 1/2 x 3 1/2 ). Dates from the Civil War period. Note the little tin buckets the child is holding. We can't quite read the badge on his cap. Condition is good. There is a bend upper left and you can also see a white streak across the man's chest.
A fun pair showing actors. The group pose has them in costumes that look Turkish. In the other one, the actor is dressed as a soldier from Eastern Europe. C.1870's. 1/6 plate (2 1/2 x 3 1/2 ). Some wear, but in pretty good overall condition.
This may be the same girl who is in another tintype with her cat. This girl is older, but looks similar. Very cute puppy that appears to be wearing a ribbon. C.1870's. 1/6 plate (2 1/2 x 3 1/2 ). Good overall condition.
A rare pair of tintypes showing the same man in two different tintypes. C.1870's. Condition is very good overall with just moderate wear and some modest scratches. Each tintype is a 1/6 plate (2 1/2 x 3 1/2 ). Very unusual and a great addition to a collection.
Delightful image of a really cute little boy with a bird at his feet. We suspect it is a stuffed bird. The boy has a wonderful expression. Great little suit and shoes. Nice subtle tinting of the boy's cheeks. Size 2.5 x 4 in its original paper holder. This tintype is quite clear. Nice contrast. Condition is very good with no bends and just very minimal scratches.
