It was Hard to Keep Kids Still… Sixth Plate Dag


Out of stock

SKU: D14-213 Category:

HER BROTHER WAS RESOLUTE. He stood like a statue next to his bouncing sister. The daguerreian used “added value” on their retaped sixth plate, painting pink pigments on the child’s ribbons and tinting to highlight their cheeks hoping that their parents wouldn’t notice the girl’s movements. The frowning boy’s white collar reflected well against that ginormous bowtie and his darker suit. Mold spiders and dots caused by weeping glass are visible. A couple wrinkles in the silver are seen almost by accident. They were caused because the daguerreian clamped the surface too tight during polishing. Oxidation is well established inside the scallop shaped mat. The cover is missing from the leather case.
