Tintype (Woman with Striped Shawl)


This 19th century sepia-toned tintype (3.25" by 2") shows a seated young woman wearing an elaborate flowered hat, a bow and jewelry at her neck, and a striped shawl across her shoulders. She stares away from the camera, unsmiling. Her cheeks have been hand tinted pink and her jewelry has been painted gold. The tin has two clipped corners. There are slight imperfections in the emulsion but the tin is undamaged.
