Brother and Sister – 1/6 plate daguerreotype, circa
1845, of a girl and her younger brother with their
arms entwined. She wears a long-sleeved, plaid
dress with smocking at the waist, a long, narrow
white ribbon around her neck, drop earrings, and
a fancy comb in her hair. Her brother wears a
black three-piece suit with a white shirt and a bow
tie. The unruly wisp of hair over his ear and the
expression on his face make him appear ill at ease.
The plate has scattered mold spiders and spots.
Full case. $195.00
