WAS THE HAT HERS? While I can’t answer my own question, obviously, I can tell you that the tiny girl was an adorable and I bet very precocious child. I will add that her retaped sixth plate really is a remarkable shade of brown. The surface actually had a stippling on the silver that might have been part of the process to create the color. I will suggest that the operator pre-focused his lens on the back of the small wooden chair then forgot to readjust enough for his subject, hence she is slightly less crisp. As you can see, there is a dark band of tarnish inside the double elliptical brass mat and a few tiny scrapes too. The repaired leather case has a cloth hinge. “Amitie” was embossed in the center of the cover. The unmarked red silk pad inside is faded.
