This darling portrait pictures an older brother putting up with his nervous younger sister cuddling close to him for their sixth plate daguerreotype portrait. The daguerreotypist sat him on what looks like a cloth covered box on a chair and her in a high chair. Half of flowers in the circlet are tinted pink, as are the boy’s cheeks. The dag is in very good condition with a few tiny mold spiders on the surface. It is resealed and comes in a case with a modern spine repair.
