LOTS OF COILS! Let me introduce you to a teenager who won the Miss Neat award in her small urban area where she had a sixth plate plate dag taken just before the end of the 1840s decade. Perfectly coiffured hair was done up to make a statement. The gal selected a lovely dress and matching ribbon for her visit to the daguerreian’s parlor. Her maker added gold to all the jewelry to insure that the lass had a proper likeness to display to her parents and friends. The highly reflective silver has faint brown oxidation on an otherwise perfect surface. That vertical line of darkness behind the sitter was a shadow. Only the bottom of her leather case remains.
