IMPRESSIVE CAMEO! You know folks, I really love this woman’s retaped sixth plate even though she wasn’t drop dead gorgeous nor were her clothes anything special. It was her wholesome, pleasant appearance that her maker captured and presented to us on a nearly pristine surface that has remarkable tonality and great depth. The subtle addition of rouge to those pale cheeks and the blue pigments he applied to the nearly hidden tablecloth were nice finishing touches. Slight mat scrapes mid-right in the oxidation next to the brass mat and a couple meaningless dots certainly aren?t distractions from the quality of the likeness. The white line on her clothing is not a scratch. The very worn complete leather case has a red velvet cushion embossed with a flower inside.
