A 19th Century Ambrotype Of A Young Boy In Decorated Mahogany Frame. This is a sixth ambrotype plate in very good condition, framed in an original mahogany frame decorated with leaf and scroll work with painted window mat and cover glass. This type of framed ambrotype is a real rarity. The photograph was made on a thin glass plate to produce a negative image that was made to appear as positive by painting the reverse of the glass plate with black material.
