Sixth-plate daguerreotype of a little boy surrounded by solarized white bedding, giving the image a bit of an ethereal or even eerie effect.

The photographer chose a smaller window mat for this dag which I find interesting.. often this was done to hide another person who was in the shot. It has been resealed with archival tape at some point, which was how I received it - so I have never seen what is underneath the mat. Some of the original seals are still inside of the case.

Very good or better antique condition.. I don't see any damage on the plate. Case missing its cover.
