This charming sixth plate dag has an oval mask vignette. I’ve always wondered at the ones like this that don’t have a mat shape that matched the vignette. Whatever the case, this is a lovely dag. The mother was calm and the little boy stayed perfectly still. Mom wore her embroidered apron to the studio, an unusual choice. Maybe she had just finished it and wanted to show it off? The resealed dag is in nice condition with a few meaningless little spots at the top center. It comes in a whole case with a bright red pad.
