THE PRIEST & THE PEKINGESE

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.

DAGUERREOTYPE
$3050. USD
THE PRIEST & THE PEKINGESE
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.
