Sixth-plate, early-1850s daguerreotype, seated woman with her son, and curled up, sleeping dog. The note shown was found inside of the case.
Housed in its original case that is complete and intact with no repairs. The original seals are intact, and the dag is in very good antique condition. Underside of the glass is a bit dirty, and looking closely I see some minor mat abrasions but since the seals are intact and pretty secure, I think these are probably original.. though I suppose the mat could’ve shifted slightly over the years... in any case the dag doesn’t appear to have ever been opened. No swipes or other damage noted.
