Four Cigar Aficionados
American half plate daguerreotype of four friends smoking cigars. Light applied hand-coloring, housed in a full case with split spine. ( Inventory# ic101 )
A brilliant plate in excellent condition. A long thin line in coat of man at top right appears to be an original scratch in plate that was not fully buffed out.
