A Beautiful Daguerreotype of a Rosy Cheeked Grandmother
The photo is unopened and shows no damage of any kind. This type of photography was practiced from 1831 up to the Civil War. The print is made on an exposed copper plate. Each photo is one of a kind. One of the very unusual aspects of this photo is that the subject is smiling. This is seldom seen, because you had to sit perfectly still for three to five minutes while the plate was exposed. Dag’s are some of the finest photography ever made. Buyer pays $6.00 shipping. Please see Contact/Terms.
