Framed Half Plate Tintype of a Man in a Horse Drawn Cart.
Framed tintype measuring 4 ¼ x 5 1/4 inches. Taken in the mid to late 19th century. Minor deterioration including surface cracks and a comet (from debris falling on the plate during the developing process). Brass mat is dinged along the edges. Clear tape at corners from previous owner. Overall very good.
Framed tintype depicts a horse-drawn cart piled with sacks of grain (or something similar) and one man sitting atop them. The man sits cross legged and has reins and horsewhip in hand. Nicely detailed exterior tintype view. Item #261
