NOT EFFECTIVE! Although the raven's wing toned shadow on the right side of the kid's sixth plate clearly represented the covered shoulder and arm of an adult, the little girl still moved her head vigorously during the exposure. It wasn't until the likeness had been restored that I noticed those fingers partially covered by a mesh glove that I realized mother was attempting to hold her daughter motionless. They are seen near the edge of the white object on the right. As you all know, I have collected childhood portraits for many years. This example, that has excellent condition and splendid deep depth plus pale tinting on the kid’s flesh, leaps up when the complete leather case is opened. A Maiden scattering roses is depicted on both sides.
