Update 6/16/2019: This tintype is now up for auction on Ebay
A few years ago the curator of the Yale Music Collection contacted me about using a tintype from my collection in their upcoming gallery exhibition. Needless, I agreed. The tintype is a favorite of mine.
The tintype is of brothers, possibly twins, displaying their chosen instruments: a cello and a flute. From the looks of their garments, they may be part of a traveling orchestra, or just your average 19th century classical musician at play? Your guess is as good as mine.
Till next, Gary
