This is a very clean, 6th plate daguerreotype of a husband and wife in an atypical three quarters view. The husband is looking straight at the camera and his wife is looking modestly down and away. She was given the task of holding a sixth plate case but it isn’t the case that they ultimately chose. The image has an early stippled mat and preserver, has (what appear to be) the original paper seals. The dag comes in a full floral case with new inner and outer hinges and a slightly faded silk trim piece. This is an exceptional daguerreotype that will make a nice addition to any collection.
