Frame and Photo

"As you can see from the image is framed in a very early, quality mahogany or similar deep frame, 15.5"high x 13.5" wide.  The back of the picture has a recessed hinged stand. When the upstand is opened it reveals a small label that reads:

JOHN LAMB

LATE PETER DIVINE

PHOTOGRAPHER AND PORTRAIT PAINTER

101 PRINCES STREET

EDINBURGH

The picture is on a hard  thick material, approx 3/16 ins thick.  On the front of the picture at the bottom right-hand corner is hand written 'J. Lamb Edin'."

The Photo

My first reaction on seeing this was that it could be a hand-tinted photo on opal.  Keith took it to his local auction house and was told that it was hand-tinted, but was heavy so appeared to be on ceramic.

Question

Keith wonders if anybody has any idea of the value of this item. If you can answer this question, or have any other comments on this photo and frame, please email me, then I'll pass on your comments to Keith.

Thank you.
