Morrotype

The tiny portrait below is proving remarkably difficult to attribute. It dates from around 1907 and has some similarities to the stickyback photos of the period, but the photographer has given the product the name “Morrotype”. This suggests that the photographer’s name was possibly Morro, or Morrot, but every effort with the usual sources has failed to turn up any photographers by that name. One other Morrotype has been spotted on google images, but attempts to contact the owner for more information have failed. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
