Passe-partout is missing

'Gutta percha' union case:
"Amazon on horseback being attacked by a tiger"
Berg 1-138, by John Smith, without labels or patent mark.
Based on the sculpture by Adolphe Kiss.

The case is missing a rail and the borders are chipped.
The photo is upside down in the case, probably because of the missing rail.

The ambrotype depicts a lady with a fringed dress, bracelets and
a ring on her finger. She's seated in front of a flowery backdrop,
by a table with a large fresh bouquet of flowers.
