AN UNUSUAL TOP HAT. Tall and white and placed perfectly on the subject?s crown so that the illumination from the left side of the studio would still sparkle in his eyes. The gent had a relaxed full-frontal pose. He sat calmly while his chosen one worked to produce this resealed sixth plate likeness. Ample patina courses inside the oval mat. Once again dripping droplets of moisture that had formed underneath the old cover glass left contaminates on the smoothly polished silver. A nice black leather Boston style push button case completes the offering.
