HUSBAND, WIFE. 2 – 1/6 PLATE AMBROTYPES IN A DOUBLE CASE. The ambrotypes are on ruby [dark colored] glass, instead of having a dark backing. This is often a sign of higher-quality work. The elaborate mats are unusual. The case has the “Mother Embracing Child 2” motif on the front and back. The posing is the same in each image, but they are presented as mirror images.
