Product Information

Shop this African American women tintype photograph for sale. The image dates to the 19th century and comes to us from a prominent New England collection of African American photographs during the 19th century. Using a method similar to that of the ambrotype, the tintype was invented in 1853. This technique, known as the collodion process, necessitates the coating, exposure, and development of photographic material, all taking place on location. While referred to as tintype, the sheets of these images are often created of iron, as in this example dating to the 1860s-1870s.


The tin plate measures 2.6 x 3.4 inches.


The plate displays unevenly cut edges, surface loss, cracking, and surface abrasions.
