Quarter-Plate Daguerreotype

Vintage Daguerreotype

1145138-1

$75.00 - 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 in one half of a vintage case is a beautifully-preserved 19th century portrait of an older woman seated in a rocking chair, clad in a bonnet and traditional period dress. Image is bordered by a gold frame, and although the front cover is missing, the verso of the back panel is intricately decorated with floral embellishments.

In very good condition, with some spotting to the image, a missing front cover and the expected wear to the case.
