    Group of 1/6th Plate Daguerreotypes showing Women and Children Seven formal portraits in six velvet lined leatherette cases, circa 1840s-1850s. A nice specialized collection focused on early Victorian ladies and their offspring. Included are three images of solitary women, one of a weary mother with two boys, one of a young girl and a cased pair of images showing a mother and her baby in separate photographs. The daguerreotypes are generally in fine condition with minor haloing and the very lightest of abrasions being the only defects when any are present. The cases variously are embossed with avian, floral and geometric designs. These show considerable wear from normal use and the spines are somewhat loose.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
