Splendid little ninth plate ambrotype of a young gentleman from Richmond, Virginia. This example is done by famed Richmond photographer, Charles Rees. His portraits are unmistakable to the eye. This one is however a ninth plate. A size which Rees seldom used. Of the countless Rees images I have handled, I think this is only the 2nd ninth plate I have had. It does still retain the original seals and I have not taken this apart to see if there is in fact a signature under the mat. The dust that is visible is trapped is trapped between the cover glass and image. If somebody wants to breaks the seals on it, this one will clean up nicely. Sharp little image by Richmond’s famed photographer. Housed in a half leatherette case.
