Might they be a significant reason why the pretty, dark haired young lady visited her local daguerreotypist? Her midnight toned dress contrasted against those flowing white sleeves and delicately sewn lace collar. The broad ribbon was colored pink with the same pigment used on her cheeks and lips. The retaped sixth plate has outstanding deep depth and it sparkles when the separated cover is removed from the leather case. At the end of her long slender chain, the woman kept a mechanical pencil. The slide used to control the length was heart shaped. Patina with spots and teeny white specks are visible. Back to her finger jewelry. I suspect that she was either recently engaged or just married. Tell all dear lass to the next collector.
