CAW-957. HEIGHT OF FASHION. This quarter plate ambrotype is lovely. It is a balsam style one, circa 1855-1857. Obviously the young men were on the cutting edge of fashion as they sat for this portrait. Tinting was added to their cheeks. Inspired illumination lit the lads perfectly. All the marks and teeny black specks are from the original process. The wooden and pressed paper case has a professionally repaired leather spine. $3,000

CDV-1059. HUNTERS WITH A HAWK. Of course, it could be any kind of bird. I'm no expert. This CDV has no ID. I've certainly never seen that backdrop/setting before. I'm guessing it's European. The image is in good condition. $125
RPPC-937. YEAH, THAT'S A GUY. I know I've had a shot of this guy in drag before. He's got a nice smile. The photographer was John F. Fasnacht of Harrisburg, PA. The card has some light marks on the surface. $65

CC-989. ALEX AND DORA. The back reads, "To Kittie with Alex & Dora's Love." The kids are certainly cute. The image is in good condition with some light marks. There is no photographer ID, but I think the image is English. $85

SNAP-1339. THE $10,000 BEAUTY. This cyanotype is mounted on a piece of album page that measures 7.5 x 6.25. It could be a bit more contrasty. On the other side is a house in Charleston, SC. $45

T-823. HAVING A RIDE. I love this tintype. The pose is so unusual. There are some papers on the ground which almost look like tintype folders. Maybe the photographer was showing them his work before convincing them to pose? The image has some light marks and a little crimp. at the bottom. $135
