Sixth Plate



D18-284    Terms of Sale

THE SILENT TYPE. The finely clothed bachelor was dressed in dark material for his remarkable resealed sixth plate daguerreotype that is held in a fine complete leather case. While he rested his arm on that table for added stability, I love the way he thrust his thumb through a button hole in his long-tailed jacket. That was a scuff mark on his knee and not a later blemish. There are several dimples in the silvered surface the largest leaving a tiny reflection lower right on his coat.
