TWO CHILDREN DRESSED ALIKE PETTING A DOG

This is a rare 'snapshot' daguerreotype taken outdoors.
Please read condition & appearance sections carefully.

The two children are probably twins. They wear matching hats and matching outfits. The child at left appears to be smiling. The dog cooperated and kept his or her head still in profile. They are sitting in long grass. Tall leafy plants add to the texture behind them. There is a surreal 'sky' area. It appears there is a building to the right and windblown trees to the left.

DAGUERREOTYPE
$3500. USD
TIPPY TOE INTO THE BROOK
SIZE
Sixth plate.
HOUSING
Full case.
CONDITION
Egregious scratches on the back of the dog’s head and neck area. Vertical scratches and some milkiness at upper right. Horizontal scratches also emanating from the edges on the periphery. All of these scratches are apparent when tilted, therefore, they are not visible in the scan. Resealed (not by us).
APPEARANCE
A bit on the dark side. Not a bright image. Remarkable setting. Remarkable composition. Remarkable content.
