The daguerreotypist was playing with various effects here and I like it! There is the thinnest of blue lines at the very edge and then the large interior of daguerreian frosting (which has also infiltrated her hair). The lighter areas at the bottom went a bit wonky too, but, not understanding the chemistry, I can’t tell you what happened other than to say that when viewed at the right angle, the fabric looks pretty cool. If she hadn’t moved her face a hair, this dag would be killer thanks to the interesting colors and contrasts the maker achieved. Or maybe we can’t blame her and his focus was a bit off? Whatever the case, there are also Two mold spiders at the left. The dag is resealed and comes in a whole leatherette case.
