Sixth Plate



D20-22    Terms of Sale

A SINGLE CLOTH . . . Was utilized and hand colored with great effect as part of the decor for this young lady’s resealed sixth plate portrait! I suspect she wore her finest outfit during her visit to a daguerreotypist. A nice image resulted. The subject’s eyes were intriguing and seem to follow my gaze from left to right! There are mold spiders and specks in places. Also one stray buff stroke that easily disappears when the likeness is examined. The bottom of the leather case is not in great condition!
