Thank you to Keith Perry for allowing me to
reproduce this photo.
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:
PHOTOGRAPHER AND PORTRAIT PAINTER
101 PRINCES STREET
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'."

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.
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
