ROUNDED FACES! They might have been brother and sister but common wisdom would suggest that the pair were more likely husband and wife when they sat for their retaped sixth plate likeness. At first, I noticed how ragged the woman’s hand was compared to the smoothness of her companions. Then I saw that he was clean shaven but the lady had a few white whiskers on her chin. Hey, you thought there might have been some type of “roll reversal” not me! The man used a straight pin to hold the material of his vest together where there was a missing button. Both subjects’ faces were sharp. The reflected depth was superb and the range of tones first-rate. An impressive horizontal piece in excellent condition. The couple are kept in an excellent thermoplastic case that has loose hinges. There is spotty tarnish hugging the opening of the frame.
