This is a daguerreotype of a very elderly woman that is wearing a white bonnet and holding her glasses. She is wrapped up in a thick shawl with threads hanging from the ends. She had such an interesting face that portrays experience. The woman appears to be old enough to have been alive during the Revolutionary War time in America. The image has stunning clarity and is housed in a great push button case. The daguerreotype is a resealed 1/6 plate with new glass and the case measures about 3.25 x 3.75 inches. $375
