Lot 33: AMBROTYPES OF A GOLD RUSH COUPLE BY ROBERT VANCE

There are two double cases, each containing two images. Both are ninth plate size.

This is the same couple twice. These are different poses from the same day, so it's logical to assume that all four ambrotypes are by Vance.

1) Woman. At lower left corner of mat: "R.H. VANCE." There is a light, almost imperceptible, stamp below that. At lower right corner of mat: "CUTTING'S PATENT JULY 4 & 11, 1854." Man. At lower left corner of mat: "R.H. VANCE...FRANCISCO" is visible. At lower right corner of mat: "CUTTING'S PATENT JULY 4 & 11, 1854." A little bit of spotting to each. Good thermoplastic case. Clasp does not hold. No nicks.

2) Same woman and man. Very good condition. When tilted, a little fogginess comes in, but it looks like the glass and not the image. Case has a big chip at lower left corner of the back. Clasp doesn’t hold.

All four images are clear with strong tones.

Robert H. Vance was one of the leading California Gold Rush photographers. He is held in high esteem. Consult Craig's Daguerreian Registry, by John Craig, for more information.
