12262 Fancy Dress 1860’s - This ⅙ plate fully
tinted ambrotype in thermoplastic case shows a
rosy-cheeked beauty wearing a fine green and
white striped gown, accentuated with pink
ruffled trim attached to the sleeves and shiny
gold jewelry. She also wears a headdress that is
too much for words as she sits upon a fine
wooden chair. Behind the image the case label
reads “Holmes, Booth, & Haydens’
Daguerreotype, Photographic and Ambrotype
Goods, of every description”. Thermoplastic
Case has a couple edge nicks and works fine.
