“LOUIS DEERFIELD” . . . Was penciled in a modern hand on a second paper seal on the back of the newly restored sixth plate dag. That tape and the inscription remain adhered to the copper. Louis was a ruggedly handsome smiling fellow when he taken circa 1850. His rather cavalier pose, with an arm resting across the top of a small wooden chair and his effervescent eyes are extraordinarily compelling, don t you think? The soft spot across his lower chest caused Mr. Deerfield s metallic watch fob to sparkle. His handsome face was crisp and well defined by the overhead brightness that entered the operating room. The likeness, kept in a full leather case with one brass latch missing, changes hues as the dashing subject is admired. A couple scrapes visible on his jacket near his hand were present when the piece was produced circa 1852. There is a mold mite near Deerfield s head and excellent patina inside the scalloped mat.
