This 19th century tintype (3.5" by 2.5") shows a three-quarter studio portrait of a seated man with several distinctive curls on the top of his head. He is wearing a striped cravat, a vest with watch chain, and a jacket with a velvet collar. One arm is positioned on a fringed studio arm rest. There is a plain backdrop. His cheeks have been hand tinted pink. The emulsion is in very good condition but there is a horizontal center crease in the tin.
