1/6 plate daguerreotype by Carleton, Portland Maine. His eagle imprint is on the burgundy velvet of the separated case. Outstanding coloration with great detail of the quilt on which the deceased child rests, giving this a vibrant character that recalls the life energy of the deceased child.
This plate was shown in the film Crimson Peak (dir. Guillermo del Toro, 2015)
