(United States ?)
Rustic portrait of two girls seated next to each other
Tintype, ca. 1855
In a half leather case

A haunting and rustic portrait of two girls, seated side by side, delicate tinting to their dresses and cheeks. Their dresses are of an identical pattern, but scaled to their different ages.

A very early, unvarnished tintype, possibly by a newcomer to the collodion process.
