An antique daguerreotype portrait of a young girl standing beside an older young man; possibly a brother and sister portrait. The girl has long hair that is left down with a dark shirt waist dress. The man is dress in his Sunday best with jacket and topknot.
There is only a partial case left with this. The daguerreotype is surrounded by a gold foil frame and the exterior of the case is leather; which does show a bit of wear. We did not take the photo out of the case so we are unsure if it has a studio name on it.
This is a Sixth Plate size which measures 3 inches tall by 2 1/2 inches wide. The frame / case measures 3 3/4 inches tall by just over 3 inches wide. We see a bit of dust towards the bottom of the portrait but no damage.
