Sisters holding Daguerreotype of mother
Daguerreotype, 1/6 plate
Private collection of Erin Waters
The one at left holds a tall vertical case, just slightly open. The one at right holds open a case to reveal a daguerreotype of a woman. This is likely a portrait of their deceased mother, with the tall case some artifact associated with her. The pristine plate shows the figures in warm tones against a creamy cool background.
