Antique 1850s Daguerreotype Photo Elderly Woman Holds Book “Flowers in Frolic”


I am pleased to offer this Antique Mid-1800s Daguerreotype Photograph!  This beautiful photograph shows an elderly woman in a bonnet and smooth black dress holding a large book titled “Flowers in Frolic”.  The photograph remains in its original flat brass mat and brass protector, and comes in an antique leather & wood case with a beautiful floral pattern.  Underneath the photograph is a paper that reads: “Photography 1839-1889 From the Collection of Albert Raborn Phillips, Jr. c. 1940”

This antique daguerreotype is in very good condition for its age, showing some light dust and light scratching from age.  The brass shows some light patina from age as well. The case shows some mild edge wear and scratching from storage.

Photograph measures approx. 3-1/4″ W x 4-1/4
