Sixth Plate



D17-222    Terms of Sale

HER BOOKS? Probably not, but the cute teenager certainly would have been educated. She or her parents selected a daguerreotypist who knew about the process. He successfully put the youngster on this resealed sixth plate. A rather funky mat was selected to surround her on the reflective silvery mirror. He used a steady hand to tint the gal’s flesh tones and then added royal blue to parts of the tablecloth. There are odd dotted breaks in the colorful oxidation and a few mat marks. When the unattached leather case cover is removed, the pretty girl will win over the heart of the next owner.
