Antique daguerreotype photograph, William Smith. Hand-tinted daguerreotype picture of William Smith. 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. The other half of it's leather case is missing. The picture features an older man. While I was able to take an excellent photo of the image, (It appears to have been slightly hand-tinted but this is very hard to see in person) 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 “William Smith, 1813 – 1887, Jeweller & clock maker also “Singing Master”, Grandfather of Will Cecil Blanche and Edna Rorabeck. ” The case is just over 3” ( 7.5 cm) by 3 1/2” ( 9 cm).
