Original Japanese ambrotype photo of a woman holding a fan, housed in its original kiri wood box. Writing is on the lid, "Mother" I believe, but I am not sure. Date is late 1870s, early-1880s. This is a guaranteed antique ambrotype photo (image on clear glass). I have not tried to remove the image from its case in any way. The case and the photo are both in excellent antique condition. Closed, the case measures a shade under 3.5" x 2.5". Boxed insured shipping: Choice of First Class or Priority Mail.
