Absolutely beautiful ninth plate ambrotype of this young lady. This has been one of my favorite images for some time. She has the appearance of a very sad or unhappy child. Her large brown eyes almost in tears with lips pursed together as if fighting the urge to cry. She wears a small black silk dress with a double strand of pearls around the neck and rosy cheeks. A very captivating image which I just love! It comes housed in a mint “Acorn” case.
