[Daguerreotype]

[A mother and her two children.]

[1840s] Quarter plate. The visible image area is 10 x 7,5 cm. The frame 13,5 x 11 cm. Decorated octagonal mat.

It has a hanger ring at the back. The paper at the backof a later date, probably from around the year 1900. It has an inscription in swedish at the back reading "Daguerreotypi å fösilfrad kopparplåt" wich in translartion means "Daguerreotype on silvered copper plate". A little oxidation along the edges of the plate. Nice condition.

An interesting and archaic looking daguerreotype from the earliest days of photography.
