Stunning Daguerreotype Brooch w/Black Forest Ivory Carving

Outstanding daguerreotype swing brooch with black forest ivory or bone carving of deer on the verso. The only example of this type I have ever seen in 25 years of collecting. Daguerreotype has a light blue hue to the plate which dates it pre-1850. The intricate carving is nothing short of spectacular. The brooch measures 2" 1/2 inches in length and 2" 1/2 inches in wide. The brooch is designed to swing completely around and is likely some grade of gold.

You would be hard pressed to find a rarer example.
