SKU: D19-202 Category:

AN EXPERIENCED FELLOW. When the gent walked into Insley’s gallery in New York City circa 1846, I would wager that Mr. I sensed a challenge that would mean keeping the highlights of his subject’s hair and face visible while not causing details to be lost in the darker regions of his jacket. And what an exceptional job he did don?t you think? The fine leather case is complete and had the most popular geometric design seen in the mid-1840s. Archival restoration has been done on his sixth plate.
