I bought this marvelous resealed sixth plate dag recently. Not only was the girl gorgeous, in an odd sort of way, but the condition of the silvery mirror is perfect. She is held in a leather case with a repaired hinge. Her costume from bonnet to dress to intricate lace collar and those fingerless lace mitts could not have been finer. The range of mid-tones in the teenager?s portrait were spectacular. If you desire a daguerreotype that presents a very precocious female on the verge of womanhood, please consider this example. Oh, I should mention that the patron of an excellent daguerreian held a closed leather dag case in her fingers.
