This 19th century tintype shows a studio portrait of a mother and daughter before a foliage and landscape backdrop. The mother sits with her body turned towards her daughter, while her daughter stands facing the camera with one hand on her mother's shoulder. Both women look at the camera. Each is dressed in an elaborate dress and wears jewelry which has been painted gold. Their cheeks have been hand tinted pink. The photograph is in a 4" by 2.5" blue mat with red decorations. There are some slight imperfections in the emulsion but the tin is flat. There are also small stains on the mat.
