This idyllic country scene is set in an English garden, complete with a family, their staff and their animals. We see a horse and groom, a nanny, a gardener and, of course, the family dog. A greenhouse is in the background. The ambrotype has been hand-colored and has a greenish tint. In full leather case with gold clasp - good condition.
The composition of this piece is incredible - all the figures are carefully posed.
