African American Teenager Black Girl Ruby Glass Ambrotype
Please be aware that this is ninth plate size. This young lady cant be swayed. The lighting is wonderful, giving her face depth. This is also a bit of a fashion statement. Look at that big bow and the pleated dress. Also notice the gold buckle and gold rings. They require a black backing in order to be seen. The exception are ruby glass ambrotypes, which need no such backing. This ambrotype came in a worn half case, but it fit loosely, so we married it to a thermoplastic (gutta percha) case in very good condition (very good corners, very good velvet, hinges tight, clasp works). We will also send the original half case.
Spots, which are more apparent when tilted. These can be seen in the scan.
