There is a red kanji stamp on the top edge of the case with the photographer's name and Japanese calligraphy in black ink on the inside of the front cover. Quarter plate (4 1/4 x 3 1/4 inches). Kiri wood case.

2) Two women with a potted plant on the pedestal in between them.

Kiri wood case, which is missing a rail.

The consignor, Alex Novak, offered to split the hammer with the Daguerreian Society. This is a generous donation and greatly appreciated.

This is a multi-item lot, so special packing fees apply. See the shipping terms for details.


Condition:1) Very good. Would be even better with a black piece of paper inserted behind. Original black paper is smaller than the image. 2) Spotting in the upper left portion.
