The text on the Royal Collection website (www.royalcollection.org.uk) describes this Daguerreotype (Accesssed: 6 Aug 2010):
 
W.E. Kilburn showed several examples of his work at the Great Exhibition, where he received a Prize Medal. His daguerreotype of Jenny Lind standing at the piano was particularly well received (Reports by the Juries, pp. 600-601):
 
For novelty of design we may mention a small picture of the interior of a room, including a whole-length portrait of Jenny Lind: beside, and near her, is a large mirror, in which the figure is reflected. That the reflection in the glass is equally perfect with the original is the point worthy of remark and commendation.
