Sixth Plate


Out of stock

THAT?S A DIMPLE! Or maybe the deep crevice might have been referred to as a cleft in the boy?s chin. Regardless of the moniker, that was quite a natural dent. Oddly enough, the subject was seated to the left of center. Who knows why when his sixth plate was created. There is nothing . . . really to say about the ordinary chap except that on this occasion he required a likeness and the person who was the daguerreian complied with his need during the visit. Only the bottom of a leather case remains. Tarnish flows inside the fancy stamped oval brass mat. Two tiny digs in the silver are on his left shoulder. The rest of the dots are harmless.
