My third and final buy from last week was another ambrotype of a family unit.
It is pretty beat up. It doesn’t have the cover (if it had one.) The frame is dinged up to the point you almost can’t see that the Grecian key motif around it. I don’t know how to clean it up so that the picture is clearer. Is that hair on the mom’s shoulder (which might suggest 1870’s)? Is that a boy or girl baby?
For me, this is my best find because I don’t have many of these and this is the best one of the ones I have. I know there are ones in far better shape out there!
