Japanese Ambrotype - Smoking Man

Japanese Ambrotype - Smoking Man

325.00

This is a very nice unattributed Japanese ambrotype of a young man sitting next to a table with a plant. He’s wearing the traditional kimono with ancestral Geta wooden sandals.  Held in his lap is a tobacco pouch and pipe.  Circa late 1870s – 1880s.

The ambrotype comes in a handcrafted polonia or kiri wood case (Berg 6-138, VR p. 460). The case is 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches. The photograph is slightly smaller. The photograph has good clarity and tonality. Both the ambrotype and case are in very good condition.
