SIMILAR FEATURES . . . But not the same painted background was hung behind the moon-faced man when he posed for his resealed sixth size daguerreotype. I am referring to the backdrop used in EEW-315; another dag owned by Erin that was sold on the previous salon page. Rolling hills and leafy trees might have been painted by the same artist. This chap has plenty of patina and a few spots. The clarity of the image and the tonality are both wonderful. His curly mane was neatly combed for the portrait. The likeable gent is kept in a leather case that has a broken hinge.
