Sixth Plate



CW-115    Terms of Sale

RARE AND INTACT! The geometric scroll on the covers of the family’s sixth plate newly sealed thermoplastic case wasn’t so unusual but the exterior hinges, patented by Kinsley & Parker June 1st 1858, aren’t seen often and to find a case with this style unbroken and in nearly mint condition is rather extraordinary! Next to the trio inside was an embossed design on a brilliantly blue velvet pad. The proud parents flanked their apprehensive daughter. Dad had a wary expression while mom seemed more pleased to have been taken. There is a slender band of oxidation. Mold spiders and black marks, which were artifacts from the polishing phase of the plate preparation, are visible.
