LOVELY POSTMORTEM DAGUERREOTYPE CHILD PROPPED UP

Sixth plate daguerreotype. Truly a lovely portrait of a deceased child, and one the family likely cherished, while grieving for their departed loved one. It's an unusual pose in the degree at which the child has been propped up. The flowing composition provides a lot of contrast. Attractive case.
