Tintypes are richly detailed one-of-a-kind silver images made by creating a direct positive on a thin sheet of metal coated with a dark lacquer or enamel and used as the support for the photographic emulsion. They are extremely archival, heirloom pieces. Vintage examples are as clear as when they were made 150 years ago. 

Plate sizes include:
'4 1/4 x 5.5' inches at £45
and '5 x 7' inches at £60.
and whole plate '6.5 x 8.5' at £80
