DIMPLED! Most serious collectors of remarkable half plate daguerreotypes that project a vignetted gent almost off the holographic silvery plane wouldn’t notice or care about two bumps in the backdrop seen as dark shadows to the left of the fellow’s massive bowtie. I mention them on his professionally conserved portrait because they are there. Nothing else mars this brilliant effort. Light cascaded into the operating room from overhead. The razor sharp focus permitted everyone who opened the subject?s complete leather push button case to observe his countenance done so realistically that the viewer watches . . . waiting for him to speak. Folks, there is much more to tell. If you desire to place a large extraordinary likeness in your collection, this fellow should seriously be considered! I must tell you also; inside there is royal blue piping and an exquisite matching pad.
