Fantastic whole plate tintypes

These two plates are fantastic, not just because I got them for next to nothing, but the quality and light is amazing. They are both whole plate in size and I can assume husband and wife as they came from the same seller who said they had always been in the family and kept together. Theres a little damage here and there as expected but the level of detail especially in the husband is really of high quality.

Take a look… They have an almost painterly quality to them.



Now that Stephs sister has moved to New York it suddenly dawned on me that all those USA Feepay items that aren’t offered with International postage I can now get sent to her! So these two were sent free delivery to New York. Bargain but best not get carried away…
