HIS BLUE SUIT. And a similar hue of shoes almost negated the little tyke’s movements while his resealed sixth plate was done circa 1845. The manufactured SCOVILLS plate had corners that were narrowly clipped and flat sides. The oxidation has accumulated during the lifespan of the lad’s portrait. I don’t know the cause of those white UFOs. Possibly cover glass that leached onto the silver? Since there were extra wooden legs behind the highchair we can’t fault the daguerreian. He attempted to immobilize his subject’s head. There is a light brown stain on the child’s leg. Small mat scrapes are along the top. The hinge on the leather case is very loose. Identical images embossed in gold were on both covers. The design was a bird and flowers.
