NOT EASY, FOR SURE. The woman?s daguerreotypist must have inwardly groaned when she promptly appeared for her appointment to be taken. Certainly her ensemble was beautiful and she was rather attractive but all that white on white would cause most operators severe headaches. I am surprised that the man didn?t ask his client to go back home and arrive with a different costume. Never the less, this really wonderful resealed sixth sized likeness was produced almost perfectly. When the separated cover is removed and the object is rotated the natural colors are not only changeable but rather astounding. There are no defects that concern me. Red pigment was applied to the gal?s freckled face and gold was painted on her ring.
