Antique daguerreotype photograph in case, two girls
Antique daguerreotype photograph in case of 2 girls. Antique picture of two girls, daguerreotype in case. I recently had a trio of antique daguerreotype photos come into the shop and this is one of them. It is in a beautiful leather case with a gilt brass edge. It has the cover to the case but it is no longer attached. The picture features a pair of girls. While I was able to take an excellent photo of the image, in person it is very silver and reflective. You have to tilt and move it to see all the image, much like a hologram. There is a note that reads “Maria O. Smith, Lois Josephine Smith, Daughters of William and Olive Smith. Maria married S.D. Barr, Lois married R. A. Rorabeck and was mother of Will Cecil Blanche and Edna.” The case is just over 3” ( 7.5 cm) by 3 1/2” ( 9 cm).
