The gentleman pictured in this ivorytype portrait is very well dressed and photographed in an elaborate studio setting, with a heavy red curtain draped elegantly behind him. The hand-coloring is carefully done.
In the ivorytype process, a photographic image was transferred to imitation ivory or to glass back with ivory-tinted paper. These were popular in the 19th century, and were intended to resemble a painting on ivory.
"Reed Beeder" is etched into the top of the plate.Please contact the gallery for a quote on shipping and insurance costs. If applicable, residents of New York will be charged sales tax. International clients will be responsible for their VAT.
