Woman with a Photo Brooch, Albumen Cart de visite, Circa 1863

    Newer Older

    "E. Bissell, Photographer, Northville."

    Although this woman is wearing a photo brooch that lacks black enamel, the rest of her attire indicates that she is in the later stages of mourning. The man in the photo--probably an ambrotype--is probably her husband, although he may also be her father.

      You see more of the brooches than you do photos of women wearing them.

      That's why I collect the images as an aside to my actual collection of the jewelry.
