This sixth plate was made either by a traveling daguerreotypist new to the trade or a parent who had also recently learned. The plate preparation, while decent, has some of the hallmarks of a reused plate – the little spots, the slightly deep buff marks. Or, it was just a more rushed and not as ‘polished’ effort. That said, the dag is so charming. Neither twin behaved enough to look at the camera yet the exposure was quick enough to catch both of their expressions. You can see a window and clapboard siding behind them. The plate is resealed and has some little mold spiders on the surface as well as a few tarnish spots. It comes in a whole case.
