16100  Tortoise Shell, MOP and Ivory Case   1//6
plate daguerreotype case containing a
daguerreotype of an older woman wearing a white
snood and white collar on a dark dress.  Her right
hand is cupped in her lap.  With her other arm she
is cradling a young boy in a dark suit. The image is
not in great condition, the case has cracks which is
to be expected and some missing MOP pieces.  
That said the case is rare and the image mat is one
used by both Brady and Vance galleries.  $350
