$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 is a beautiful 19th century half-length portrait of a seated woman. Resting her left elbow on a side table, she dons a traditional bonnet and period dress. Her cheeks are tinted pink and her dress features a few select gold highlights. The image is bordered by a gold frame, and the interior of the attached front cover is lined in red satin. The original closure clasps remain intact and still-functioning.

In very good condition, with some scattered spotting to the frame, some light surface marks and a loose hinge.
