Unknown 1860's Girl Hand-Tinted

This was an interesting find. I'm almost certain it's from the 1860's, judging on the gold border style and the little girl's clothing. The girl's dress has been tinted yellow, and her cheeks and the tablecloth her arm is resting on are both pink. Sadly, there is no name or photographer given anywhere on the photograph.

If you know who this may be, let us know in the comments!

  1. You definitely have an 1860s photo here. The hand tinting is nice. Most I have seen are just plain sepia. I'd guess based on the size of the image that it's 1865+. Prior to that the images tended to be quarter sized in the center of a white field. What a great find!
