Untitled, Portrait of a seated lady, resting her arm on a table with three photograph cases
Ambrotype, mid 1860s
Case study: a spare and straightforward portrait with delicate hand-coloring in the figure's face and on the paisley cloth covering the table beside her.

On the table next to her arm are one 9th plate and two 6th plate leather cases. Is there some meaning to her downwardly pointed index fingers?

Size:1/6th plate
No. 26.132
