Ambrotype - Civil War Era Mother and Daughter in Mourning


This is a 3" x 3.5" ambrotype of a mother and daughter in mourning. They are not in severe mourning anymore because they are both wearing white collars instead of all black. The mother looks lost while the daughter has a look of stoicism on her face.

They both have their black lace gloves on and each looks to have a handkerchief in their hands. Maybe to show they are still distraught over the loss of their loved one?
