HIS MAKER . . . Certainly wasn?t the greatest technician since he left deep streaks in the silver after he polished this resealed sixth plate. During the life span of the portrait, that was created about 1845, cruel owners haven?t treated the surface kindly either. BUT the remarkable character of the youthful male, who wore a pinky ring and had a rather devil may care pose has certainly withstood the tests of time and human ignorance. The complete leather case has a horizontal lyre theme.
