A 6th plate measures 3.25" x 2.75". Why so sad? Bags under the eyes. Dumped by his sweetheart or over-worked apprentice? He's wearing a plain cotton jacket or smock over his fancy clothes, most likely to protect them when on the job. Nice contrast. He must have moved his head slightly, the focus is a little soft. Lots of specks under the glass. A previous owner changed the seals without much success. They should be replaced by someone more qualified. A rather engaging portrait in an attractive full case (interior). The hinge is on the verge of splitting, I will add a new one.
