The woman in this quarter plate image has such a presence, doesn’t she? Her perfectly lit face is framed by her bonnet, which sports flowers, a feather plume, and ribbons. The flowers have been tinted red and the feathers blue. Her square brooch is outlined in gold. The bonnet ribbons’ color, also blue, is from solarization. This image is a slightly small plate and it had slid a bit before it came to me. When I realigned it to show her hand, the little wipe at the top appeared, but I don’t think it detracts from the image much. I had to reseal the dag with old glass, which has a few bubbles in it, because the case is a bit smaller than the normal quarter plate as well. The case has a repaired spine.
