Two Ninth Plate Occupational Tintypes of the Same Man with Tools of his Trade, Plus Additional Cased Images of Women

Lot of 4.

Two ninth plate occupational daguerreotypes of a man, which appear to be from the same sitting. In the first image he wears a jacket and looks towards the ground while holding a small tool in his hand that rests on the arm of a velvet chair. The second shows the same man, sans jacket, his sleeves rolled past his elbows, seated and actively working with more tools, displayed on a portable table in front of him.

Accompanied by a quarter plate tintype of a daughter sitting on her mother's lap and a sixth plate tintype of two spinsters. 



Some surface scratches to the images of women. Of the occupational images, one is quite dark.
