The ambrotype process  is a photographic process that creates a positive photographic image on a sheet of glass using the wet plate collodion process patented in 1854 by James Ambrose Cutting of Boston just a few years before that by Frederick Scott Archer.

In Great Britain it was called collodion positive: one side of a very clean glass plate is covered with a thin layer of collodion, then dipped in a silver nitrate solution. The plate is exposed to the subject while still wet. then developed and fixed.

The ambrotype was much less expensive to produce than the daguerreotype, and  By the late 1850s, the ambrotype was overtaking the daguerreotype in popularity; by the mid-1860s, the ambrotype itself was supplanted by the tintype and other processes.

Ambrotypes were often hand-tinted. Untinted ambrotypes are grayish-white and have less contrast and brilliance than daguerreotypes. Because of their fragility  were held in folding cases much like those used for daguerreotypes
