19th C. Tintype Portrait of Man with Mustache, Pink Cheeks and Perfectly Knotted Tie

Regular price $15.00

So many boxes out there of tintype portraits to rummage through, which I do tend to do, and sometimes am just struck by one. I love soulful face on this guy, with deep brown eyes, and his wide, perfectly knotted neck tie, too, looking maybe like a banker, or a merchant of some sort, but not so much like the boss! And with the matte cream of the ground framing the oval portrait just the right thing.

3 3/4 x 2 1/2 and in very good condition, super crisp with rich blacks and hand-tinted pink cheeks.
