6th plate daguerreotype of a woman with braided hair .. or could it be some kind of cap????... wearing an interesting necklace, that almost looks like it's made of cloth(?), ....possibly mourning related. Her full name was Eleanor Catherine Harrison Ackerman (1807-1880). She was married to George Warner Ackerman, an engraver and printer, and she was the daughter of Charles Peter Harrison, a well-known engraver and copper-plate printer. Eleanor and George lived in New York City. Taken circa 1847. Her dark dress and that strange necklace makes me wonder if she was dressed in partial mourning for her mother, Elizabeth, who died in New York in December of 1846... *I also own an ambrotype of George, forgot to include it here, but can make it available to the buyer of this image. This dag is in a full case, with Plumbe's basket of flowers design on the covers. Case is nice, intact and complete with no repairs and only light leather wear. The dag has some tarnish spots and a tarnish ring, but no swipe or scratch damage. Under magnification I see a few pinprick green corrosion spots on the right side next to her shoulder. It's been resealed with archival tape with a lot of older seal bits inside behind the image. Boxed & insured PRIORITY MAIL.
