We realize that no photograph or scan of a daguerreotype or other image can be a 100% perfect reproduction. We do our best to accurately reproduce and desribe the images, but your final acceptance can only come when you actually hold the image in your hand. We will gladly accept a return of any image that does not meet your expectations, provided you notify us of your intention to return it, and it has not been tampered with in any way.

A magnificent quarter-plate daguerreotype portrait of a woman holding her your child. The woman is dressed stylishly, including a large hat, and a cameo brooch at her neck. The child has no problem keeping her mouth open for the duration of the exposure. Nicely lit, crisp, sharp image. Housed in a double-clasped leather case with the "Wolfert's Roost" motif. The image is no longer sealed, and the case is separated at the hinge. The interior maroon velvet bears the imprint of Knapp Artist, the Alhambra, 559 Broadway (New York City, NY). According to CDR, William R. Knapp opened a gallery at this address in October, 1851, and operated there through most of 1855. $495.00
