HER HAT WAS HUGE! And their maker applied bright pink pigment that fancy ribbon adorning the crown of the neatly woven straw sunshade. That was another piece of headgear resting on the table near her brother’s hand. It had a fancy golden buckle and a large feather on top! He moved during the execution of their retaped sixth plate. His sister, while not being quite sure or even happy with the procedure of being taken, remained motionless. Red paint was lavished on her necklace along with a dollop of gold on the clasp. Both their tinted faces have dots of brown mold. Specks and flecks are faintly visible inside the scallop shaped layer of patina. There are also some tiny mat scrapes at the periphery. I think that the daguerreian probably made several attempts and this was the likeness mom and dag selected. The complete leather case has an earlier hinge repair.
