Portrait of a smiling woman posed holding a book open on her lap
Ambrotype, 1860s
In a full leather case, and with delicate hand-tinting of the woman's cheeks and gold-highlights on her jewelry

A striking rich image on deep ruby glass, and with one of the most detailed and beautifully stamped heavy foil mats we've ever come across. This particular mat design is seldom seen.
