ADDED VALUE. I wonder if the daguerreian knew ahead of the lad’s posed sixth plate portrait that the results (of the child’s appearance) would be rather strange and that to sell the dag, he would have to paint that table cloth which might detour the boy’s parent’s eyes from him somewhat? Okay, the kid was probably frightened and ready to scream out. His lips were beginning to part while the lens was uncapped. Along with the red rouge on his face the man painted gold on that wide ring. The mold spiders and white flecks probably were all a result of the deteriorated glass that covered him before Casey did restoration work. The bottom of a leather case remains with the dag.
