STYLISH GAL . . . But way ahead of her time and I mention this because of her hairstyle. She sat for her archivally taped sixth plate portrait circa 1852+-. Certainly that short-sleeved dress was indicative of a warm day outdoors. The lace mitts were fashionable during much of the daguerreian era yet the lass simply appeared to have been from another era when she posed for her well-made likeness. A good complete leather case with a bouquet of flowers on the cover and an embossed red velvet pad inside completes the package. There are teeny specks in the neutral background on the right side of the sitter?s head and a couple mold spiders elsewhere. Patina mimics the shape of the brass opening. Red pigment was painted on her face.
