1850s Ambrotype of an Engaged Couple
Victorian Photograph Collection of Jennifer Carnell

Ambrotype of a young engaged couple. The young lady has a large diamond engagement ring. The young man had recently returned from Australia - I know this because the buyer of some other pictures of the man showed me an ambrotype of him in Australia.
They were probably related in some way to the older woman in the Claudet daguerreotype as they came together.

Ambrotype by Henneman and Malone, Photographers to the Queen, circa 1855.
Nicholaas Henneman had worked with Fox Talbot, and was in partnership with Malone at 122 Regent Street, London.

Update: Since writing this page, a kind expert in the field has advised me that this photograph is not by Henneman and Malone, despite it being in one of their cases.
Henneman and Malone did not take ambrotypes, and only produced paper prints. The ambrotype must have replaced the original photo in the case, which
makes sense as the case is slightly too big for the ambrotype.
