Tintype: young woman and boy with a white cat, ca. 1865

Image of Tintype: young woman and boy with a white cat, ca. 1865

A very rare tintype!

This one is trimmed and has an unusual odd but beautiful size. The composition is absolutely nice and rare. Cutting someone off is rare in 19th century photographs.

The lady holds a cat on here knees. She has tinted cheeks. The young boy is slightly off focus but holds a very nice pose.

ca. 6,3 x 0,31 cm No bends, oddly trimmed, small chips off at the bottom.
ca. 1865

Small, but very strong picture!
