3 Daguerreotypes in Mother-of-Pearl Inlaid Cases

A wonderful image of a beautiful young woman in a floral print or brocade dress with a high collar. She is displaying her wedding ring on one hand. The case is beautifully inlaid with mother-of-pearl and painted with flowers, with one small patch missing. The spine is gold embossed. 2 5/8 by 3 1/8 inches.

Extremely fine daguerreotype image of a young woman, probably in mourning, with white lace collar and ribbon in her hair, in mother-of-pearl inlaid case, with small patch missing. There is a small coin of mother-of-pearl inside the case. 2 7/8 by 3 ¼ inches. The case inlay is particularly elaborate.

Double cased daguerreotypes of a woman and a man in fine clothes, the woman with a fine bonnet, lace shawl, and lace mitts and what appears to be a satin dress. The man is wearing a dark suit with a high stock. The case is inlaid with mother-of-pearl, but is missing a small piece. The spine is gold embossed. 2 5/8 by 3 inches.
