This little tintype shows a faint oval scuff mark that says it was once in a mat that would have hidden most of the woman holding the child. In this case I am sure it is the mother and not a photographer's assistant. The two are wearing dresses made from the same plaid fabric. To me this guarantees that they are mother and child. Even with the mat we could still see one of her hands resting on the baby's flat hat and the other holding the baby below the waist. The hat is tinted pink. I find both the hat and the double string of pearls around the baby's neck unusual.
