Sixth Plate



EW-13    Terms of Sale

AN OVAL FACE. This handsome young man dressed up to have his sixth plate daguerreotype made. His checked vest contrasts nicely with his patterned necktie. His face is well-tinted. I like the daguerreotypist had him look away from the camera, and a bit inquisitively at that. The image is resealed and comes in a case with a split spine. It is in very good condition but there is some tarnish visible at an angle. In the scan, it shows up as the darker area of the back drop. In person, it’s brown.
