This is an example of some of the custom framing I like to do for tintypes. I made this little wooden box by hand, sealing the tintype behind glass, and finishing with satin ribbon for the binding. This is a reinterpretation of the original tintype cases that would have held the metal plates. The finished piece is 3"x3" and is ready to travel with in a coat pocket or set on a dresser top.
Feel free to contact me with any questions about custom framing or tintype portraiture!
