Rich Plate by Upton
A superb sixth plate daguerreotype of two darling siblings, by Benjamin Franklin Upton. Housed in a full leather case with bright red pad. Price: $850. ( Inventory# ic237 )
A magnificent, rich daguerreian image.
Craig's Daguerreian Registry lists Upton as operating in Bath, Maine, as well as Chicago Illinois, and as the holder of daguerreian patents for a special mercury bath and a plate polisher. If they were used to make this image, it's a great testimonial!
