    Very rare; exquisite quality.

    Quarter Plate Daguerreotype: Portrait of a Girl, Circa 1854. She is holding a huge china/bisque head doll on the table at her side. The doll is fully half the girl's size, one of the largest we've ever seen. The little girl, with "movie star" looks, wears a dress over white lace pantaloons, necklace with gilt highlights, the doll and little girl both with delicately tinted pink cheeks. Finest quality, perfect condition. Original seal present, carefully opened to clean cover glass. Image untouched/ uncleaned. Housed in the original floral vase leather case, hinge split else fine. Great image.
