This is an Original Civil War or Earlier Ambrotype of a Nude Lady. She is in a reclined position wearing a shawl or similar item. I had thought that the shawl was scratches in the image but I looked closely and saw that she was actually wearing a shawl type piece of covering.The image is very dark. There are some scratches on the image. This image needs a good, professional cleaning.
The pictures make the image look brighter than it is. My pictures show the reflection of my camera, the glass in the image prevented me from getting a non-reflecting image. This image is in a half case.
