North America, United States, ca. 1840 to 1900 CE. A lovely pair of antique photographs, each depicting a singular female figure. The first photograph, a daguerreotype, displays a three-quarters portrait of a seated woman wearing a plaid dress and a ring on her left pinky finger, her hair done up in in a two-part bun around her head; the photograph itself is set in an ovular brass mat with a protective glass panel and a perimeter brass preserver in a leather-wrapped wooden frame. The second photograph is an ambrotype of a young girl, shown seated in full portrait, with her one hand clasping the other and one elbow resting on a linen-draped side table; the photograph itself is covered by an embossed brass mat with a protective glass cover panel and set within a similarly-embossed brass perimeter frame which holds everything in place with four flaps folded around the back. An interesting study group for anyone who appreciates early photography. Size (daguerreotype): 3.625" W x 3.125" H (9.2 cm x 7.9 cm); size (ambrotype): 2.75" W x 3.25" H (7 cm x 8.3 cm).
