I LIKE THE MAT! Naturally, the pleasant expressions on the faces of the girls, who might have been sisters, have impressed me more. I won’t say that the sitters were squeezed together for their resealed sixth plate, but the room wasn’t overly large either. One of the gals had a closed leather case resting on one thigh while her friend (hey siblings could be friends) displayed a sealed dag. I have attempted to determine the subject matter without success. I think that those were props and had no meaning to the teenagers. The man applied pale rouge to their freckled cheeks. Lovely patina follows the folds in the brass design. The tonality changes remarkably when the detached leather cover is removed and the likeness is angled in different directions. There are teeny mat marks if you seek them out.
