4 Extremely Large Daguerreotypes in Cases

A very large daguerreotype of a British officer dressed as an equerry to the Queen, in red coatee with mameluke hilted sword with a massive multi-strand aiguillettes on his shoulder. His epaulettes, aiguillettes and cuffs are painted gold. He bears a strong resemblance to the Prince of Wales. The image is in a gold matte in a fine leather case. The image is 4 by 5 inches.

A large daguerreotype portrait of a woman with her hair on her shoulders, wearing mourning. She has a ring on her index finger and a long chain on her throat. The image is in an unusual oval matte that appears to be made of several layers of carved bone. A piece of tape has been inserted in the back to stabilize the assembly. It has a black glass matte with painted gold rings, and is in a leather case. The image is 4 1/8 by 5 inches. The lid is slightly warped and does not close properly, but is intact and sound.

A daguerreotype portrait of a woman in mourning in oval matte, she is wearing a black shawl and black lace mitts, as well as a black lace ribbon in her hair. The image is in a black leather case with detached cover. The glass is loose in the case, and may be a modern replacement. The image is 4 1/8 by 5 3/8 inches. The lid of the case does not match the back, but is the correct size.

A daguerreotype portrait of a husband and wife, both fairly young and very well-dressed. The woman, who is very attractive, is holding a kerchief in her lap. The image is in a leatherette case whose lid is partially detached. The image is 3 1/8 by 4 1/8 inches. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $30.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance.
