Sixth Plate


Out of stock

SKU: D18-310 Category:

ON HIS BEST DAY . . . Henry Pollock, who operated in Baltimore circa 1849-1860+ could hand color a sixth plate daguerreotype in a style that would successfully compete with other acknowledged masters in the school of applied pigments to create life-like renderings on resealed portraits. The serious and obviously very wealthy lass is kept in a worn complete leather case. There is a teeny green speck and a mold spider on her forehead. Needless to say, the likeness views 100 times better in hand.
