Vintage Daguerreotype

$49.00 - Product is currently out of stock.

Quarter-Plate Daguerreotype (1840 - 1855), 19th century portrait, vintage case, 3.25 x 4.25. The daguerreotype photograph, developed in 1839 by Louis Daguerre, was the very process that would make history as the first publicly announced and commercially recognized photographic process. This type of image can be identified by its mirror-like surface of metallic silver which, when tilted, may virtually disappear.

Featured here is an adorable 19th century portrait of a small boy clad in a button-down jacket and bow tie, posed in a chair and gripping a tiny book. Image is bordered by a gold frame. Although the front cover of the vintage case is missing, the back panel features one half of the original closure clasp.

In fine condition, with the front cover missing and a bit of silvering and spotting around the edges of the image.
