1/6 Daguerreotype Pretty Woman, Book on Table, Painted Gold Jewelry, Tinted
1/6 daguerreotype of a pretty woman seated at a small table. She's wearing a lot of hand-painted gold jewelry: dangling earrings, a ring, a bracelet, and a chain with a gold watch on the end, which is tucked into her dress. Even the book on the table has gold highlights! Her cheeks and lips are a very soft pink. In a half of a case, that is 3.75" x 3.25". The seals are no longer intact, but most of them are still in one piece inside the case. Plate has no obvious scratches or swipes. There is one small cluster of tarnish or corrosion on her shoulder, to the right of her brooch, and a single spot of tarnish below her bracelet. The underside of the glass is a bit foggy in parts..
Possibly could be haze on the plate, not certain, don't have a magnifier on me.
