This is an appealing and crisp daguerreotype of a young lady from the pre-Civil War era. She has a classic hairstyle and is wearing a white collar and engageantes and gold jewellery which includes a guard chain passing to a pencil and watch which is just visible peeking out of a pocket, earrings and a ring. She also wears a black band on her left wrist (query mourning). There is slight tinting to her cheeks. The image has minimal tarnish and spotting. The mat has slight spotting but is in generally very good condition – the case however is missing its front and the back cover shows some wear. This is a nice clear representation of the fashion for a young lady of the era. Sixth plate. Case measures 3.6 ins (9cm) x 3.2 ins (8cm). Weight 92 grams.
This item can be seen in the book, "How the Watch was Worn - A Fashion for 500 Years", on page 103.
