21001 Kids Seated with a Blue Coverlet  I have had this
image in my collection since 2001 and I purchased it from
Dennis Waters. I will let him describe it. “If primitiveness
and rather garish tinting attracts you to daguerreotypes,
then this sixth plate example will absolutely delight. At
one angle the kids are blue, at another they are brown:
the lighting is strong and the boy moved, but I still love
the pose and crude wrinkled backdrop. They might have
been seated in the door of their home. Resealed, the plate
is great.” (see pg 27 of Waters catalog #1)   I have placed
it in a full case.  $450
