Original daguerreotype of two women... look like they could have been sisters (although the one on the right sort of looks like Edgar Allan Poe! I think so, anyway. Did he have a sister who lived in Cincinnati?).
The two women are wearing painted gold jewelry and the pair is very fashionable... the woman on the left is also wearing long ringlet style curls in her hair.
Mat is stamped FARIS CINCINNATI. This was Thomas Faris. This is a ninth-pate (1/9) resilvered dag that comes in half of its original case. The original seals have dried up and fallen off but they are still inside of the case. Very nice contrast in hand; a couple of minor issues on the plate: tiny mold spiders and some tarnish, but I DO NOT see any swipes, abrasions or corrosion. It's in overall very good or better antique condition.
