    Three Quarter Plate Albumen Portrait by English Photographers Maull & Polyblank, Circa 1860. Exquisitely hand tinted, perfect condition. Housed in the original tan, pebbled leather, push button case, with brass hinges. Image perfect, case excellent. The case is embossed in gilt in the center of the reverse "Maull & Polyblank/ 55/ Gracechurch/ Street/ London". The partnership of Maull & Polyblank existed from 1856 to 1865, and they were renowned for their photographic portraits of noted individuals, many of which were published in The London Times or as book illustrations. Although unidentified, the subject of this image is certainly worthy of research. A very attractive image by an important English photographer and very desirable in this great case.
