Little Lucy, Sixth Plate Dag


Out of stock

SKU: EW-18 Category:

MISS LUCY BAKER? and a few other words are written in the bottom of the case. Whenever I see images like this, of a child so at ease, in bare feet, seemingly at home, I wonder if a parent was the daguerreotypist. I mean, just look at that wallpaper! Little Lucy was very curious about what her mother or father was up to as she sat on her cushioned chair. Someone tinted her cheeks after the image was done. The sixth plate image is resealed and comes in a half case. Condition is very good, if a bit lacking in contrast. There are some teeny black spots here and there on the plate.
