Tintype- Hidden Mother

    Newer Older

    A classic hidden mother/attendant (one can't always assume it is the mother holding the child) with the face purposely removed. If you look closely, you can see her hand slightly uncovered on the right side of the image. Found in WI.

      Very interesting. Love the presence of her hand.

      I think the fact that the holder's face has been obliterated is a good clue that it is not the mother. Why would they wipe out the mother's face?
