How was it possible to capture three such happy go lucky siblings on their restored quarter plate palette? If you disdain the droll, frightened, uncertain and simply boring (sometimes) portraits of children and want one that shows sensational spontaneity then I presume this threesome is for you! Surely, they must have been the daguerreian’s kids. I can’t remember seeing such a trio of amicable brothers in any fine daguerreotype that I have previously offered for sale. There are mat scrapes in the patina on the left side along with a couple of white dots. The masterpiece comes in a separated leather case.
