Ambrotype of a lady in fur wrap (in case)

Ambrotype of a lady in fur wrap (in case)
9th plate American ambrotype
photographer unknown, ca. 1857-60

Small photograph of an elegant lady with fur, veiled bonnet and white (or light coloured) leather gloves. Her frontal pose is seasoned with the shadow of a smile.

The ambrotype is quite severely damaged by moisture and was fitted with an unmatched case cover by one of its previous owners.
