Sixth Plate


Out of stock

SKU: D15-054 Category:

HAVE YOU EVER? This resealed sixth plate, I wanted to make certain that future generations could have enjoyment from viewing what possibly might have been the worst copy of a daguerreotype produced, presents us with an experienced couple who found it necessary to have a second dag done sometime after the original that had been framed by a domed mat. All those horrendous horizontal lines occurred on the first plate as did the mat scrapes. The piece I am offering for sale while not centered so the double elliptical mat would hide the initial effort was polished efficiently and remarkably enough the depth and contrast are impressive. The edges of dag number one are visible on the right side and along the bottom. The cover is missing from the leather case.
