THE PRIEST & THE PEKINGESE DAGUERREOTYPE $3050. USD

Back to Gallery
This daguerreotype was found in Thunder Bay, Canada, by a friend of mine years ago. The priest presents well and the Pekingese dog certainly trusts and depends on him.

SIZE. Sixth plate.
HOUSING. Very worn half case, missing the top rail.
CONDITION. Unsealed. (This is a consignment.) Would benefit from new glass (which we will include at buyer’s request). With new glass, most of the little spots would disappear. Thin ring of tarnish. Spider mold at waist. Small brown spot at 9:00. Small spots above man’s head.
APPEARANCE. Delightful composition. Nice facial tint. Nice interaction. Very good contrast.
