13658 Wide-Eyed Man with Child – ¼ plate daguerreotype
depicts a father who awkwardly holds his daughter on his lap.
His left hand is pushed up against her head in order to force
her to look forward. The man sits tall in front of a plain
backdrop as he wears a patterned vest and polka-dotted knot
tie. His daughter wears a rather plain dress accentuated with
white lace ruffles at the sleeves and neck. $350
