Antique 1/9th Plate Violet Glass Ambrotype Portrait of a Man w/ Union Case


  • Great Violet Glass Ambrotype Portrait
  • The man sits with his hair swooped suavely, his blues eyes adding to his striking gaze. 
  • Octagon Cut glass with matching ornate brass mat, preserver and protective glass.
  • Nicely housed in a black octagon thermoplastic case
  • “Geometric” – Berg 3-397; “Scroll” Krainik 614
  • Great addition to any collection! 



Image has spotting and some mild scratching from age, as well as mild silvering and light dust. The brass mat and preserver show some mild patina and wear, but are intact. The case is in very nice condition. A couple of miniscule nicks along the exterior edges, no cracks or major chipping seen. Hinges are firm and operable, and clasp is working. Displays nicely.
