    Ambryotypes

    Produced by an early wet-plate process whereby a faint negative image on glass is seen as positive when held against a dark background. Introduced in 1854, the peak years were 1857-1859. If the ambryotype is in an image case, the value is increased.

    Ambryotype: Ninth plate ambryotype, young girl in ornate gold oval frame, some discoloration at edges of image, designed wine colored velvet facing, set in embossed case, torn at spine, clasp works. $25.00


    Daguerreotypes

    Images are produced on a silver coated copper plate. Most were made in the early 1850s. They came in various sizes: 1/16 plate (1-3/8" x 1-5/8") being the smallest, up to full plate (6-1/2" x 8-1/2"). Many daguerreotypes have some small amount of coloring added by artificial means, often "pinking" of the cheeks or applying gilt to jewelry. Some are done in full color application. If the daguerreotype is in a case, this increases the value substantially.
