Daguerreian Hair Bracelet



D17-1    Terms of Sale

WAS IT HER HAIR? I made these iPhone photos of the daguerreian hair bracelet I bought recently. The dealer carefully displayed the artifact and placed it in a small black box with a clear window for viewing. I believe the inscription on the cover of the hinged top was etched: “A. M. T.” The delicate “catch” chain seems to be original. The weaving of the hair was more intricate than usually seen. The actual color of those strands was “dishwater blonde”. The condition of the weave is actually quite good. The woman’s daguerreotype was copied from another plate and she was soft.
