Sixth Plate

ONE OF THOSE DAYS. Either the operator’s chemistry wasn’t up to snuff when he placed the pair of young women on his sixth plate or this could possibly be a copy of an original daguerreotype. The retaped likeness still presents the lasses in good light. Although admittedly their pose does seem slightly stilted. They don’t appear to have been sisters. I wonder what their relationship was. A couple harsh polishing marks and one mold spider are seen on the silver. My reproduction accurately shows the contrast and tonality. A wooden and composite case is separated along the spine.
