16159 Blacksmiths Outstanding ¼ plate occupational
ambrotype of a father and son blacksmith team. These two
“smithies” proudly display their craft with a pair of
horseshoes. We have to say that judging by this one example
the son’s work has already exceeded that of his dad in quality!
This is a fine occupational portrait that is different from most
blacksmith images. It is equally nice to see a generational
partnership. The image is in very good condition with nice
tones and contrast along with some very light tinting to their
faces. Full case. $1,250
