13148 Child in Arms – 1/6 plate
daguerreotype of a woman holding a toddler
in her arms.  This mother dresses with great
detail, so notice the black laced gloves, the
edges of her sleeve, the collar of her shirt, and
gold earrings.  The child has dark hair and
wears a dark dress trimmed in lace. There
are some scattered mold spiders on the plate
and a fingerprint on the left edge. Still a
beautiful portrait.   $175
