Portrait of a gentleman wearing a work apron 
1850 (ca) 
  
Daguerreotype, 1/6 plate 
The Isenburg Collection @ AMC Toronto 
 
LL/11414 
  
Well dressed bearded gentleman wearing a work apron. He is installing a daguerreotype in the locket in his hands. Exposed in a studio, he is seated behind a board which sits balanced atop a Jenny Lind type posing table on which lie assorted tools for the work at hand, namely two other daguerreian lockets positioned on the board. He most probably worked in the studio since many daguerreotypists did their own work, If the work was subcontracted to a jeweler, it most probably would have been done on a jewelers bench rather than the make-shift props found in a studio. (Matt Isenburg)
