DRIPPING WITH ELEGANCE! This very wealthy Boston Beauty?s archivally prepared sixth place was probably conceived by Lucius H. Cathan who operated in Vermont early on but had a studio in Boston when his sumptuous patron was taken about 1851. Her likeness is kept in a magnificent complete Japanned case inlaid with mother of pearl. (See second scan). The depth of the portrait and the delicacy of tinting plus superlative condition propel her portrait into the stratosphere of daguerreotypy!
