Sixth-Plate Daguerreotype

Vintage Daguerreotype

1145353-1

$75.00 - Product is currently out of stock.

Sixth-Plate Daguerreotype (1840 - 1855), 19th century portrait, vintage 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 case is a half-length portrait of two older women, each clad in a bonnet and traditional period dress. They sit, arm and arm, both staring intently at the camera. The image is bordered by a gold frame, and although the front cover is missing, the back panel bears half of the original closure clasp.

In very good condition, with some silvering and darker areas along the edge of the image, some light spotting to the gold frame and a missing front cover.
