4 Image Horizonal Gutta Percha Littlefield,Parsons, & Co. Union Case .
Offered is a four image horizontal Gutta Percha union case with Daguerreotype? photos of a family. The case is marked; “Littlefield, Parsons, & co. Manufacturers of Daguerreotypes Cases. L.P.& Co are the only legal Manufacturers of Union Cases, with the Embracing Rivited Hinge, Patented Oct. 12, 1856 & Ap. 21,1857.” I’mNOT an expert on antique Photographs! I’m assuming these images are Dags and not tin types? I took a photo of the backs so maybe you can tell for certain what these are? My frontal photos are not the best due to reflections. The case itself is approx.. 4-5/8” X 3”. I believe the photos are ninth plate images? The photos are of a man & woman(I assume husband & wife) on the bottom side and a young girl & a boy on the top side. The boy & mother seam to be a bit darker but do show better detail when viewed from a sight side angle. The father & daughter are clearer and easier to view. The four gold colored frames are all different in design. Likewise, the front and back decorations on the case are different. The case has some slight conditions to mention. One of the metal closure clip tabs is missing on the inside. When the case is closed, it can shift a tad bit off center(see close up photos). That may be due to the missing tab? I also noticed one hinge wiggles a tiny bit that might also cause the shift? I have NOT attempted any adjustments or repairs. Also there is a tiny chip on 2 very tips of the corners. (pictured) Lastly, there is a red substance in the groves of the decoration below the urn. Itmost likely should clean off. Look carefully at all photos and offer accordingly. Please view ALL my pictures carefully to better determine the exact condition to your own satisfaction. I ask that you ask necessary questions early & PRIOR to offerding. I will assist you in any way I can. I must sell this as pictured, as described, and 'AS IS'. Thank you & good luck...
