When I bought this sixth plate dag late last year, I didn’t think I’d ever seen such a spooky, folky backdrop before, at least on a dag plate. You see things like this in tintypes later in the 19th century, but it’s a but unusual in the 1840s, don’t you think? Coupled with the fact that the dag itself is a hair dark, the entire piece makes for a rather odd presentation. That said, I love it! The image is resealed and comes in a whole case.
