Hardcover. Quarter plate daguerreotype in floral leather case. Measuring 3¾" x 4½". Case rubbed but hinge sound and clasps present, the case is very good or better; the image about fine. A lovely dag of two young sisters in hand-tinted, blue polka-dotted dresses. Subjects unidentified. The case, matte, and fashions all indicate that the image is circa 1847. An unusually crisp, fine, and clear image which appears never to have been, or needed to be, cleaned. Although each daguerreotype is unique, they are not particularly rare. However the quality of this image is exceptional.
