…to say that this young woman was not in her finest outfit would be a tough argument. From the accented colors of her bonnet to the delicately accentuated flowers of her tie, it’s a wonder more color wasn’t applied to her sleeves as well.  But, the amount is perfect for a balance of color to silver ratio of the finest of daguerreotypes. Upon closer inspection the intricate lace pattern can be seen, showing nicely over her white undershirt.  Hard to tell from how she is posed whether to tell if her lace gloves were of the fingerless variety, as many are seen in dags.  Of note on her wrist is a finely woven hair bracelet that likely holds a daguerreotype in the small locket that can bee seen. She is held in a whole case with a fabric repair on the spine done some time ago. The condition is very fine.
