    LOT OF FIVE NATIVE AMERICAN INDIAN WOMEN AND CHILDREN PORTRAITS - 1/6TH PLATE TINTYPES - ca. 1860-85. A study of transitional dress is the focus of this lot of (5) tintypes. The lot is highlighted by an image of two women wearing Christian crosses that have been painted in gold by the photographer. The images portray a single young woman, two children, a young child, and a girl about age nine in a close portrait. The images are in good to fair condition, with minor emulsion loss, scratches and bends. The image of the older women has excellent sharpness and tone with good contrast.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
