THE LASS WAS LOVELY! Before someone cleaned the sixth plate silver I believe her dress had been tinted a brighter green and her flesh tones also would have been more realistic. Never the less, when the sitter?s fine intact leather case is opened, her charm and beauty immediately triumph over all else. The weird purplish ring around her was probably caused during the application of the gold chloride, when the metal ring holding the piece flat was overheated. Notice that she wore a daguerreian hair bracelet on her wrist! Any other miniscule marks you might notice are superfluous to the teenager?s cunning countenance!
