Four wonderful ambrotype photos housed in a thermoplastic case. Cheaper than daguerreotypes, ambrotypes are photos on glass backed with black paper or cloth or painted black in order to appear as a positive image. They were briefly popular during the 1850s-1860s before being superseded by the even cheaper but sturdier tintype, which did not require a protective case. Refer to photos for size & condition: The ambros are standard 1/9 plate size. Condition is good overall with a crack to one side of the case that does not impede its function.
