A boy seated at a cloth covered posing table
Daguerreotype, 1848 to 1853

In a full leather case with an expertly repaired hinge.

A charming young lad with hat in hand stares seriously at the lens, as if studying the darkness within. A slightly 'painterly' approach, perfect exposure and a pleasant tarnish ring combine to form a very aesthetic daguerreotype
