Whole Plate Daguerreotype of a Family

A whole plate daguerreotype of a charming family, featuring a smartly dressed father and mother holding their young son (whose head movement seems to have caused a very slight blurring effect). The mother is wearing lace gloves and the father is sporting a cravat. Image housed in full leatherette case.


Image with some spotting and scratches, including one area near the bottom of the father's torso where the image has been worn away. Case hinges are still intact, but bottom edge of back half of case is missing. 

Estimate: $200 - $400
Price Realized Including Buyer's Premium
