This is a fresh 6th plate tinted daguerreotype of a middle aged woman. The table has a blue tint and it appears to be an example of a daguerreotypist early tinting process that has faded with time. The woman is wearing two gold tinted rings. The image has an early stippled mat and preserver and comes in a full “floral” case with the original hinges still intact. The case has a red velvet trim piece with peacock sitting on a branch. Overall this is an exceptional photograph and case that anyone would be proud to display.
