Today's tintype features a teenage girl from most likely the 1870's. Unfortunately as is seen with most tintypes, this subject is unidentified and there is no photographer or year associated. Her hair is worn long, braided back from the face and adorned with a large bow and some type of beading embellishment in the center part.
The very busy neck and bust adornments are all characteristics of 1870 women's fashions. Note the unusual bow scarf, frilly neck and long rope chain with pendant. Her dress has an unusual dark, quilted piece down the front that beautifully offsets the lighter colors of the rest of the dress and accessories.
