William Edward Kilburn
Copy of a Miniature Painting
Daguerreotype, 1/6 plate (undersized)
Collection of Michael G. Jacob
Case stamped “By Appointment. William E. Kilburn, 234 Regent Street, London.” The original painting was a very fine (1820/30s?) miniature of a young woman in a low-cut dress with chiffon sleeves. White paint has been used to light the jewels, the plate tinted overall, though some red 'spiders' now evident, the paint having dried in spots.
