An outstanding recently resealed quarter plate daguerreotype framed by an oval paper mat covered on the front by gold foil. The double silvered plate did not have a hallmark. The lad’s complete stylish leather case and the surround were used sparingly circa 1844-1846. The surface was cleaned by a previous owner in 1998. The dark object lower left was a portion of a studio chair. All the white specks nearly disappear when the child is admired.
