Antique Tintype of Bohemian Troupe Lounging | 1880s
Regular priceSale price
Here we have a rare and unusual tintype of a bohemian troupe lounging on each other. Who said the old-timers didn't know how to stray from the norm? Such a bizarre image. Check out the hat worn by the woman on the right. Looks almost military. And then the stripes on the young woman at the center. Very cool 19th century fashion. And last but not least, you have the dude leaning on everybody. Seriously pal, just relax.
The rare antique photograph comes out of a Minnesota estate containing some very rare and unusual photography. My guess is the rare tintype came out of the 1880s.
The unusual tintype photograph measures about 3 1/2" tall, and just over 2 1/2" wide. There is significant wear throughout the tintype, including a scrape along the top middle (see pic). However, the sharpness of the image really pops and breaks through all of it. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship FedEx to street addresses in the continental USA only (no PO boxes). The rare tintype will be shipping housed in a hard sleeve. Free shipping on the unusual 19th century photograph.
Everyone just needs to chill while we take 20 minute to take this photo.
