CW-969. RHODE ISLAND MONUMENT. This tin measures about 5 x 7 inches. While more research could be done it could be at the dedication of this Civil War Monument. There are lots of signs visible. The tin is in fine condition and has some of the best contrast we've ever seen in any tintype and a lovely tone. For further information about the soldiers and sailors monument in Providence please visit this website. $1250

CDV-1068. FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS. These unidentified CDVs are quite nice and in good condition with a few little spots. $65
SNAP-1364. FRESH EGGS. This snap measures 3.5 x 5.25. The image has some light marks and photo corner residue. $20
T-1074. SPREAD OWLS. At least, that's what I think it says. Regardless, there is a stuffed owl in a prominent position and another stuffed bird at the top center. It was August 16, 1882 in Burlington, VT. The image comes in a 4 x 6 folder. The surface has just a few light scratches. The ladies were certainly having fun. Their names are written on the back and there were two sets of sisters. $825
CDV-1069. LENS AND CASED IMAGE. I was so intrigued by the open cased image on the table that I didn't notice the camera lens at first. The image is by T.P. Stiff of Hyannis, MA. The CDV is in good condition with some light marks and a few spots. The bottom of the mount has some soiling. $125
CC-1006. IN THE NEWS. This is fun image of three friends. The surface has some light marks and fade as well as some vertical scratches that don't really detract. $125
SNAP-1365. PHOTO OF PROOFS. The back tells us which one the family chose to have printed. The image measures 2.75 x 4.5. The image is in good condition with some minor silvering. $35
CW-967. SHOWING HIS BACK. This ninth plate ambrotype comes in a whole case. It is in nice condition. We se just a hair of his face and beard. $275
CW-968. A PAINTING. This tintype is CDV sized. The image shows both the painting, leaning against headrests, and a painted backdrop. The rug, about the same size as the painting, works at a counterpoint. The image is in good condition with some light marks and two scratches at the top. $325
CDV-1067. MAN AND HIS PEACOCK. This CDV is not identified by print, but there is a penciled notation on the back that says St. Mary's, PA, HW Bridges, photographer. The photo has some light marks and a few spots visible at an angle. $250
SNAP-1368. THEY WERE PROBABLY BEST FRIENDS. This image is 2.75 x 4.5. The image is in good condition. $18

T-1075. BARE FEET OUTSIDE. This tintype is in good condition with some light marks. His cheeks are lightly tinted. $42
SNAP-1366. SUMMER FUN. This images are 2.5 x 3.5 each. I am seriously concerned about that lady with her head in the sand, although it looks there might be some kind of straw there. Note that in the one with here, his head is right next to her body. $150
T-1076. HANGING PAINTING. This tintype has some surface crazing and a heavier scratch on the head of the woman on the left. $40
CDV-1070. SLEEPING DOGS. They were probably the photographer's, who decided to practice his art on a dull work-day. The photographer was B.E. Lodore or Elkton, MD. The photo is in good condition with some minor fade. $225
SNAP-1367. CAUGHT A HEAD. This snapshot measures 3.5 x 5.5 and is in fine condition. The tourist photo captured a perfect moment of motion and gives us a gorgeous glimpse of a probably summery day. $350
