Excellent pair of husband and wife tintypes. The husband is dressed in his Union Army Uniform armed with his rifle and is identified behind the case in period handwriting. I can't quite make out the name but it always says Adams, New York & dated Jan 24th 1863. The soldiers wife holds a photo within her own photo, rare and unusual in its own right.
Both are housed in a a very rare doubled sided jappaned mother of pearl book style case that is in very good condition considering how fragile the mother of pearl is. CONDITION: both images are in very good antique condition and are clear and sharp.
