Mid-1840s daguereotype of a man, seated at a small table with hand-tinted tablecloth. There is an object on there but I can't tell for sure what it is.. hat or book... maybe something else. Dag has its original seals intact and the underside of the glass is dirty, but the plate is undamaged. The case is also in excellent antique condition with light leather wear, but complete with both of its clasps and no repairs done to it. There is no label inside. Closed, the case is 4.5" x 3.75", so a little under 1/4 plate. Shipping is by boxed & insured Priority Mail.
