TINTYPES

T-1097 A CHAPEL? This quarter plate tin comes mounted in a mat. Someone told me this could be the interior of a Civil War chapel, given the symbol at the center. The broadsides are not readable, unfortunately. The message at the top reads, ďGod is Love.Ē The image has some light and some heavier marks. The marks donít show up as much in person. $345

T-873 SO STRANGE. This sixth plate tin comes in a whole case. The image is in nice condition. It looks like he was seated outside with some shrubbery thrown in for accents. The image is solarized, giving him a really eerie look. There is no information about him as a soldier. His buttons are tinted gold. $195
T-1102 HOLDING HANDS. This pair look like sisters to me. The image is in good condition with some light marks. $65
CW-983 OUTDOOR GROUP. I wonder if they were on a camping trip? The tin has some light marks and surface cracking. $35
T-1103 GROUP OF ELEVEN. Youíll notice that the same woman is in every single image. I like the variety of painted backdrops. The tins are in good condition overall with some light marks here and there. A few have some surface crazing. $145
AMBROTYPES
A-149 WINTER FURS. This sixth plate ambrotype comes in a whole case. I resealed it with new glass. The image is in nice condition and is very sharp. $95

CC-726 PLAYING CARDS. This pair of ink drawn cards came in a cabinet card album. The pair is a little larger than a standard card. Each is in nice condition. $125
CC-805 GLASS CANE. Each boy holds the same cane. Weberís studio setup was quite nice. Each image is in good condition. $40
CC-914 CYANOTYPE PORTRAIT. This image is mounted on a 5 x 7 card. It is in nice condition but for a little wear on the mount. There is no photographer mounted. Itís an unusual format for a cabinet card. $85
CC-1099 HARRIE WALLACE KUMLER. This set of seven cards shows the first 7 years of Master Harrieís life. His age is on the back of one card. The shot of him holding ice skates is dated 1903. The shot of him in the carriage has some light marks and soiling, but the others are in good condition with some light marks. $75
