Please view my detailed photos for the actual condition of this cased image and as part of my description. These two tintype contains excellent contrast, tonal range and sharpness. Warm toned hand tinting was applied to each of their faces.
Their rare matching mats are in excellent condition. Each of these smaller CDV or 1/8 plate tintypes rests in a leatherette case with nicely restored leather hinges, both containing their working latches and velvet pillows. Please note, the pillows and exteriors of the cases are not matching, but I cannot tell you how rare it is to find two of these cases of the same size with matching mats and cover glass. Overall, a magnificent and rare pairing.Note: The mats both measure to the outside edge of the preservers 2 1/8" X 3 3/8" inches. The outside of each case of course measures slightly larger.
