Up for sale is a very old daguerreotype photograph of a woman in a miniature leather case. The case has blue velvet on one side and an ornate gold matt on the other. The photo is round and has a rather somber looking lady. It likely is not original to the case because the case was made for more of a larger square photo and this one does not fill up the space. This case has its original latch and it is still intact although the leather is worn off in a couple spots, including by the latch from rubbing. The case is 2" tall by 1 3/4" wide when closed. This piece is in much nicer shape than many of these leather cases I have seen!
I apologize for my poor photography - I had to put some extra light on the case to get the blue velvet to show up.
