Sixteenth Plate by Quinby
Sixteenth plate daguerreotype of lady wearing crucifix and broach ca. 1855, by Charles J. Quinby, New York. Housed in half case, brass mat impressed "QUINBY 385 BROADWAY." ( Inventory# ib55 )
Truly amazing detail in this tiny image, under magnification the design on her broach can be made out. A few bug bites to the half case, faint pressure mark from reverse to left of her head.
