THE PAINTED CHAIR. While I do love the actual subject of this sixth plate dag, I do wish that we could see more of the painted chair he was sitting in, especially since it’s perfectly in focus, while he is just a hair off. The man looks a bit stern, don’t you think? His cheeks are bright pink and his shiny hat bounced the light around. There are is a small, old wipe at the very top. There is also a dent in the middle of his chest. The dag was resealed but not by us. He comes in a case with an old spine repair.
