SHE SAT FOR A MASTER. Perfect posture, sensational poise, taken by a professional operator and newly restored, this sixth plate has every component of a masterful object that was taken circa 1845-1846. Yes, indeed readers, by the mid-1840s the best daguerreians were capable of producing likenesses that wouldn?t ever be surpassed in the industry. The subtleties of the woman?s portrait might be overlooked by most but the next ?educated collector? who owns the lady will continue to remove the separated leather case cover to admire the miniature treasure inside. The pressed singular leaf on the bright blue velvet pad is also stunning! Small mat scrapes and mold spiders are not problematic.
