BLOWING HIM A KISS! Surely her husband was the daguerreotypist and without his previous knowledge the young wife wanted him to remember her very visually in this resealed sixth plate likeness. Her puckered lips would just show how much she loved him and their little child. Well, I wonder if that worked? The baby moved and might have been far enough forward towards the lens to be out of focus. Mom’s intense black eyes were aimed directly at the camera. Fine colors were applied to both subjects, which added realism to the likeness. Funky tarnish created even more colors. The dag has wonderful reflected depth and a full leather case. There is a tiny dig in the gal’s sleeve lower left.
