CHERRY CHEEKS! What a contrast in their expressions! Can there be any doubt that the self-assured girl and the hesitant little boy with his hand on the gal’s shoulder were brother and sister? The unusual brass mat gives their retaped sixth plate added pizzazz! Don’t you wonder why the daguerreotypist tinted that small basket on the right then covered it up? The kids have great contrast and outstanding holographic depth! That dress can be hypnotic if a viewer moves the piece slowly back and forth in good light. There are a couple mat marks, pretty patina and a meaningless vertical drip mark between the older child and the mat on the left side. Their leather case is in two pieces.
