Sixth Plate


Out of stock

SKU: D16-135 Category:

NAILED! Such a curiously displayed copy dag from the original sixth plate begs that questions should be asked. How good was the first plate executed? Both mom and her little daughter might have soft faces. The older girl who stood and placed her hand on mother?s shoulder had a well-defined countenance and lovely dark eyes that peered towards the lens. The pattern of her dress was simply amazing! I wonder what the colors were? I estimate that the threesome was taken circa 1846 in a rural hamlet located far from ?civilization?! The same operator might have made this effort at the same time after he finished the original. The double elliptical mat was not the one he chose. This one shows more of the surface of the second dag and the method that was employed to duplicate their image. It has been resealed and placed in a very worn leather case with a Delicate Roses design.
