AN INTERESTING COSTUME. The attentive child flows forward from the midnight nothingness behind her, because the daguerreian selected a black cloth and used almost direct light to bathe his tiny subject in enough brightness to record her on a newly resealed sixth plate. Someone dressed the wide-eyed gal in layers of clothes. That belt cinched around the girl’s waist belonged to the studio. It was used to make certain a child didn’t decide to leap out of the high chair while the lens was uncapped. Although she is surrounded by a snowstorm of teeny mold spiders and white dots, along with broadly flowing oxidation, the kid really sparkles inside the fancy frame. The image is extremely rich and highly reflective. Subtle tinting was applied to her face. A brown circle is on one sleeve. The leather case is in two pieces.
