Antique Ambrotype portrait of a Boy, 1/9th plate
This product is currently sold out.
Straight from the shelves of the printshop, this framed Ambrotype photograph is the perfect Victorian addition to any home or collection. Printed on glass using a wet plate process, Ambrotype photographs became popular during the 1850s when they replaced their more expensive predecessor, the Daguerreotype, printed on silver-plated copper. Although it is debated whether early photographer James Ambrose Cutting coined the term “ambrotype,” the breakdown of the word in Ancient Greek comes to mean “immortal impression”.

1/9th plate photograph (2" x 2.5")
