NOT THEIR FLOWERS. While the children’s mom tried to hold the head of her younger offspring still, those were her fingers underneath the patterned cloth; the daguerreian probably decided during the exposure of the retaped sixth plate that something more would be necessary to satisfy the parents. So, he produced his palette of pigments and proceeded to paint green leafy vines accentuated with red and yellow splashes that were meant to replicate flowers. Both children had very dark complexions. The contrast was excellent along with the tonality. Unfortunately moisture-laden glass dripped on the silver and many mold spiders are very apparent. The man also attempted to use his iron restraint on the babe. The top of the tightening screw was visible next to the child’s head. The leather case has a black fabric hinge.
