Vintage Daguerreotype

$159.00 - 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.

Pictured within this vintage case is a bust-length portrait of a handsome young man, clad in a traditional suit and tie. The image is bordered by an oval gold frame with the name "Whitehurst" engraved at the bottom. Although the front cover is detached, the case still features a third of the original closure clasps.

In very good condition, with scattered light spotting to the frame and image, some silvering around the border of the image, the front cover detached and the expected wear to the back panel.
