NOT TWINS! But the brothers were close enough in age to have been dressed almost identically by their mother before they ventured out to the local daguerreotypist where they had this sixth plate taken. The retaped likeness has great contrast and fine deeply reflected depth. Both lads had copper hued hands and the way they placed them were like a mirror image. The elder boy moved his head slightly when the lens was uncapped but his sibling remained motionless. Lots of speckled tarnish frames them further inside their unusual brass mat. Faint red tinting was touched on the kids? cheeks and lips. Inside their complete leather case a bright red pad was nicely embossed.
