STRANGE PATINA FOR SURE . . . However, the pretty sisters still shine brightly in their archivally prepared sixth plate dag kept in a separated leather case. Two sets of eyes were directed towards the camera during the brief exposure. The girls visited their maker probably later than 1852. Gold paint along with a silver color (rarely seen) was applied to their jewelry. When I examine and admire these kids while holding the dag, the difference between my scan the actual object is night and day.
