Petulant Child with Coral Necklace
Sixth plate daguerreotype of rambunctious girl, with painted red coral necklace. Anonymous American ca. 1855, in full case with split spine. ( Inventory# ia490 )
She's a sweet one, done up with fancy curls, yet seated in a ragged chair that must have been quite an embarrassment to the photographer.
