Grandpa with Girl with Doll
Quarter plate English daguerreotype of an old gent with young girl who in turn is holding her doll. Housed in full morocco-leather case. Price: $450. ( Inventory# ia726 )
The older gent in this image is truly ancient and almost appears to have fallen asleep during the sitting. The worried young girl huddles apprehensively with her bright-eyed true friend, Dolly, who moved slightly during the exposure but still shows much detail.
