ONLY FROSTING. Those uniform white dots were part of the process readers and they are not flaws in the wonderful childhood sixth size likeness. The other flecks are harmless. There are a couple nearly parallel lines on the right that are impossible to find. The kid, who held a squeak toy with two lambs on top, was not happy about sitting for the daguerreotypist. He or she was ready to leap out of that chair! In the shadow next to the subject’s right leg I can see the vertical post that would support a head restraint. Precise lighting helped create impressive contrast, overall richness and deep depth. Oxidation flows freely following the brass mat shape. The resealed image is kept inside a whole leather case.
