Half Plate



CW-414    Terms of Sale

IN A LACQUERED WOODEN FRAME. They were all so sad, sitting in front of a camera capable of producing this superb (most likely French) half plate daguerreotype that Casey resealed using the original painted glass. Although the patina was plentiful, it would have been shameful to alter the silver that has aged very well otherwise. The girl held a small bouquet of flowers while the delicateness of the lad ‘s hand on his older sister’s shoulder and their holding each other’s hands was almost heart wrenching. It is really difficult to contemplate the events leading up to their likeness. Ready to be displayed on a wall.
