Antique daguerreotype photograph portraits of man and woman in double framed leather wood union case from Civil War era. After inspection I have determined it to be daguerreotype based on research and will be happy to share additional photos out of case if interested. The leather case features birds at a floral fountain. The embossed leather case measures 3.75 H x 3.25 W. It has hook latches and made of wood. The photo itself measures 3.25 H x 2.75 W outside of frame (sixth plate).
The photos themselves are very well preserved and in excellent condition for age. The case shows wear as expected and you can see some wood underneath leather on sides. The tooled design is exquisite on back and I could not find any makers mark.
