Please refer to our stock # G408 when inquiring.

Offered is a lovely, double, gutta-percha photograph case holding two early 19th century tin types of two different women, as well as a teeny, uncased, tin type of a third woman.

The double gutta-percha case measures 2.5 inches wide x 3 inches long x .75 inches deep when closed, and 5 inches wide when opened. The case appears to be in excellent condition!

The two cased tin types are each further framed within different press-molded, thin, ornate, brass frame and behind a little pane of glass. Each tin type is labeled with the name of the woman: the bonneted woman is Sarah Lavinia Piquet, and the long-haired woman is Maria Rogere.

Mid-19th century age is an approximation based on clothing style as well as decorative art in photo and style of double case.

Condition of tin types is excellent- **ANY white marks seen in photographs are caused by light reflection and are NOT damage.**

The third tin type is of an unnamed woman; it is quite tiny, measuring 6/8 of an inch wide x 1 inch long.
