Ormsbee Miniature House Photographer Business Card Advertising Antique Boston:
This sale is for an interesting business card or advertising card from Ormsbee's Miniature House in Boston Massachusetts. Marcus Ormsbee was an early photographer and one of the earliest Daguerreotypists in Boston. The card was created by Tappan & Bradford, an engraving company in Boston. The card was found tucked away in an 1843 atlas. I would think it dates around the 1850's or maybe as late at 1860, considering the photograph types that are listed on the card. The card is thin, and shiny on both sides. The text and design all have a raised quality to it.
I was able to find an advertisment from a newspaper that talks a bit about Ormsbee and his MiniatureHouseat:
It measures 3 7/16 x 2 inches.
Condition wise, fine scratching, some corner/edge wear, some soiling.
