"pieplate" style photographs #general

We have a small oval "pie-plate" (though I never knew that was what it was
called) of my grandmother, apparently taken at the same time as a family
photo, 1901-02 in NYC (probably lower Manhattan).

Subject: "pieplate" style photographs

Can anyone tell methe name of the style and the span of time during which
"pieplate" photographs were produced?Also, were these type of photos done
in Eastern Europe (Ukraine or Poland)as well as in the US? The photos are
sepia toned and mounted on a convex metal plate.They are round although I
have seen one that is oblong. They are formally posed.
Thanks

Although I have never heard them called that, I have Two prints on tin
of my mother as a baby (b. 1906) and her mother-so turn of the 20th
century.

They are not like the tintypes that I have seen but seem to be much
better quality pictures printed on a convex tin about 4 inches across.
The back is closed but hollow. I have one which is varnished or
shellacked or something and one which is matte finish.
