Victorian Silver Plated Copper Picture Frames

A collection of picture frames – the concept and idea invented by Louis Jacques – Mande Dauerie . Introduced to the world in 1839.

The process involves polished sheets of silver plated copper to a mirror finish, it was then treated with fumes to make it light sensitive to expose in a camera.

This was then superseded by two other techniques: ‘ambotype collodian positire – 1850’s impression and ‘tintupe in the 1860’s : similar to a photograph on thin black laquer – iron hard to distinguish.

Each frame is 55 GBP. Can be bought individually, or as a whole. They look really fantastic all collated on a wall together.

Great gifts!

(Please note there is no reference to the people on the images, as these are all old sourced pictures in this ancient technique. Used mainly for art purposes , no offence intended.)
