This is a cute small case tintype that is a ninth plate size (1/9). It measures 1 1/2 by 2 inches in side the oval of the mat. It feature a young boy sitting in a black youth's chair. He is wearing 2 different colors of gingham or plaids which make for a lively photograph. His cheeks are very faintly tinted pink. It is in excellent condition along with the gold mat and protector. There is glass between the mat and protector. The case is wood covered with embossed paper. It is missing its cover so it makes a nice open frame measuring 2 1/2 by about 3 inches. This is a terrific small tintype to add to any photography collection!
