Unusual, mounted “gem” tintype set into a calling card-sized envelope


Here, a “gem” tintype portrait of young Isabella Jane Hawthorn, with her hand-tinted rosy cheeks, is conjoined with another Victorian custom of calling cards and their related small envelopes. A clever and personal gift of friendship from a young woman.
