Vintage Daguerreotype

$75.00 - Product is currently out of stock.

Sixth-Plate Daguerreotype (1840 - 1855), 19th century portrait, vintage Union Case, 2.75 x 3.25. 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 within one half of this vintage Union Case is a half-length portrait of an older woman, clad in a bonnet, traditional period dress and shawl. She stares, fixated, while gripping a book in her lap. 

Some dark areas along the edge of the image, some light spotting to the gold frame and a missing front cover, otherwise fine condition.
