This lovely daguerreotype features an embossed union case with an ornate scene of a bird among flowers with a butterfly overhead. Both the front and back of the case have the same design. The case features two small hook closures and has a gold diamond border design around each side inside. The picture is of a young couple sitting side by side. There is an very ornate scalloped frame around the picture with hearts embossed in each corner. The case measures 3 1/8 x 3 5/8" x 5/8" deep.
This Victorian piece is in very good condition. The hinges are tight and the hooks are in good working order. The picture is a bit faded.
