Sixth Plate


Out of stock

SKU: D17-101 Category:

A CUTE KID! At times I succumb to wonderful subjects posed in their resealed sixth plate daguerreotypes. This innocent gal was so compelling when I opened her leather case with a poorly repaired leather hinge that I decided to make the purchase. The brown spots and mold spiders are difficult not to see, however the cunning gal with that neat white lace accenting her cr�me colored dress overcame those deficiencies. The tablecloth where where she had placed her arm was tinted light red. I think those nearly invisible lines were done during the addition of pigments on the fabric. She wore a pinky ring and oxidation surrounds the young subject.
