A QUILTED BODICE? I'm not certain which I found more unusual, the woman's dress or her very peculiar facial expression when she posed rather casually for this resealed sixth plate daguerreotype. Lovely oxidation adds colors naturally. That is a mold spider near the subject’s neck. Wherever she posed, the room was equipped with a skylight. Her mother of pearl case, see second scan, has a red plush velvet spine!
