Antique 1800s Infant Baby Tintype Photograph Gold Frame Post Mortem Deceased

This is an antique tin type photo from the 1800s. It's roughly 3x2.5 in size, I've included photos with a ruler.

The subject is an infant, the photograph taken post mortem (after death) which was common practice in that time period as a way to memorialize loved ones. The photo is great quality, very detailed and crisp. It has a gold tone metal frame folded around it with a delicate detailed design. The baby is laying in a white gown, holding flowers, on a very nice couch.

Could almost just appear to be sleeping if one didn't know the context. When I came across this little treasure I felt very protective of it, I refused to sell it and had it on my shelf for the longest time. But the time has come for me to pass it along. I'm hoping it will find a good home with another curiosity / oddity collector like myself.

Feel free to contact me with questions.
