Sixth Plate



D19-173    Terms of Sale

OUTLINED IN GOLD! I know most of you wonder why I bother to buy resealed sixth plate dags in less than perfect condition since that is my on-going mantra, “condition condition condition”. Well, the frowning little lass, who held droopy flowers and cradled that Staffordshire dog simply told me to make the purchase when I opened her complete wooden and pressed paper case. Taken by an itinerant somewhere in rural America around 1850, the portrait presents to us a wonderful almost painterly rendering of the child, who stood on a chair to be taken at the same height as the camera. This kid speaks to me!
