Sixth Plate



D17-59    Terms of Sale

DOUBLE COMBS. I have reproduced the written inscription in the bottom of Ms. Manchester’s separated sixth size leather case. She visited a daguerreian in March 1852, prior to celebrating her 19th birthday! She might also have been daguerreotyped shortly after she was married, since that definitely looks like a wedding band on the correct finger. The youthful lass calmly sat on a small chair and watched the operator while he made his exposure. Beautiful patina, excellence tonality and fine reflected depth highlight the girl’s resealed image. The condition is excellent.
