1850s, sixth-plate daguerreotype, little girl with her old dog, who might be asleep in her lap. She is wearing several painted gold rings. Very sweet 19th Century pet image. Comes in half of a case. It is in very good condition with original, intact seals. If you look closely there are some light horizontal line defects, which are original, not scratches or later damage. No corrosion or abrasions. The little spot on her hair looks like it's on the glass. Boxed and insured Priority Mail, discounted boxed Express option.
