SITTING IN MOM?S LAP. This uncertain little one just wasn?t going to sit still for the daguerreotypist. Even with mom?s steady hand, she still moved a hair. It?s a cute ninth plate nonetheless. Her cheeks are lightly tinted. The dag comes in a case with a split spine. It is resealed and in nice condition with a few little mold spiders. It?s a nice example of the hidden mother genre.
