Orotone 1

Possibly from the studio of Asahel Curtis.
An Orotone is defined as a positive image printed on glass, often made from contact printing the original negative. In the case of Edward S. Curtis, the man who perfected this process, the positive plate was then backed with a mixture of gold dust and banana oil. Due to the fragile nature of the plate, these images were most often sold framed in gilded frames that were sensitive to the Arts and Crafts period.
This image is most likely Mt Rainier, a very popular subject of Asheal Curtis and is in a wonderful Arts and Crafts bat wing frame. Excellent condition. Measures 16 3/4 inches tall by 12 inches wide.
