Antique Convex Glass Gold Oval Frame Hand Colored Man Photograph
This is an absolutely stunning antique hand colored photograph or print from the late 1800s/early 1900s. During this time it was common practice to bring life to black and white photographs by adding color to the surface. This photo of a handsome gentleman has very subtle colors added. There is a very very slight rosiness to his cheeks and lips and some added definition to his eyes and ears. There are also some greenish tones to the background, although I'm unclear if those were added later or if they are the color of the actual photo. The tin frame features a leaf embellishment and is in excellent vintage condition. The glass is also in great shape with no major scratches or cracks. It could use a deep clean if the buyer so chooses. There is a wire on the back for hanging.

Each antique item shows only light, minimal signs of wear/age unless otherwise noted in the listing. Take a close look at all the photos! (but also keep in mind I used a very detailed close up lens so "flaws" will stand out more in the photos than they will when the item is seen in person.)
