Pair of Sixth Plates



D19-31    Terms of Sale

"HENRY B. WOOLLS SR." Mr. Woolls was taken on their resealed sixth plate with his little daughter "Sara E. Woolls". They were fitted on the right side of a thermoplastic case that had two image compartments, because a woman, most likely Henry's wife, was daguerreotyped holding their sleeping baby. Both images have oxidized inside the scalloped mat. There are brief mat marks too. Mold mites and a few meaningless specks are also visible. The baby’s white dress was really solarized. The pair of likenesses together seen side by side make a nice family grouping.
