GIRL WITH GOLD NECKLACE CLUTCHING DELICATELY HAND-TINTED FLOWERS
AMBROTYPE $100. USD
She doesn't reveal much, but she's unyielding in her gaze. She has tinted cheeks, a gold necklace, and an especially bright gold ring. She clutches flowers that have been carefully painted red, pink, and light pink, with green leaves. She wears a plaid dress cut to the shoulders.
SIZE. Sixth plate.
HOUSING. Very worn split full case.
CONDITION. There is a snowflake pattern (usually associated with a binder) thatís only on the dark furniture at left, so itís curious. The snowflakes appear when tilted, but with straight on viewing, it looks like white specks on the black. A couple imperfections in the glass. Regardless, very good condition.
APPEARANCE. Great clarity. Rich tones. Understated flowers are a big plus. Gold jewelry adds to it. She's intriguing.
