Old Tintype Photo,photographer Briley Girl ? Antique China Head Doll,flushing,mi:
Please Note: This Tintype features the backdrop with bridge in the "Test" Tintype of the Empty Chair". Our reserve is the opening offer. Please Note:
We purchased a good number of 19th century photos by W. W. Briley of Flushing.
We have a Flushing Train and partail Station photo listed as well as a Cabinet Photo of a Train at Flushing. We will also be listing many Flushing photos by W.W. Briley including his studios, him with his camera, and a Briley's photography advertising CDV, two test prop Tintypes (one as seen here) as well as other very interesting photos of Briley, his wife and children, very well posed and many with nice props. This is another interesting antique Tintype. Two sweet curly locked girls pose wearing wonderful lovely clothes. Their beautiful China Head Dolls stand between them perched atop a chair. The dolls faces are crips and sharp. The dolls did not move but the girls moved slightly so their faces are not sharp. The girl on the right's face is a little sharper. The back is lightly pencil scrpted W. W. Briley. The Tintype is is a pink paper sleeve with gilt ornamentation. The backdrop with the bridge in this Tintype can be seen in Briley's "Test" Tintype of the Empty Chair. We believe these girls may be W. W. Briley's daughters. The Tintype is a rich and lovely brown and has very good contrast. We estimate it to be from the 1870s or 1880s or so. The paper sleeve is 3 1/8 by 4 1/8 inches and the Tintype is 2 3/8 by 3 3/8 inches. The tips of the paper sleeve are bumped. What a lovely photo by Briley of two sweet little girls posing with their dolls! Please email questions and we welcome info. We pack with great care using heavy cardboard and will combine purchases to you shipping costs, but you MUST WAIT for our invoice in order to receive these savings. Please email any questions regarding packing, shipping, payment and description. Thank you.
The colored text does not appear on the actual postcard. The Tintype is rich and lovely brown and has very good contrast.
