1/2 Plate-3/4 view of woman

A stunning 3/4 view of a woman who appears to be a strong and confident within her likeness. The British daguerreotype is masterfully composed within this arched mat. She wears a beautiful brooch & fob over her incredible patterned shawl. Her hair is nicely braided with rose tinting applied to her face. The case is a full leather case with an unusual mint condition silk pad. A tarnish ring surrounds this wonderful plate along the perimeter of the mat. Case in very good condition. $225
