Offered for sale is this exceptionally clean, amethyst ambrotype of a beautiful young woman in a three quarter pose. She is wearing dangling earrings, a brooch, a pocket watch and two rings that are all tinted gold.
The ambro comes in a full thermoplastic case with a “Liberty” cover (Berg 1-66, C, p. 97, $225) and a very very rare “Stars in Corners, Plain Oval” base (Berg 1-69, VVR, p. 98, $450). The ambrotype has the old paper seals and is in a nearly perfect mat and preserver. The case has a very clean green velvet trim piece and matching retainer. The case is in very good to excellent condition with tight hinges and closure and minimal flea bites.
