Beautiful 1852 Tinted Daguerreotype Photograph Young Girl With Hoop Mary Best For Sale
MORE PHOTOS BELOW
I recently obtained a collection of family photographs and painted portrait miniatures from the estate of Major John Horncastle Eddison (1888-1982) who was mentioned in despatches while serving in the Royal Field Artillery in WWI and who also played international Rugby for England.
Offered here is a beautiful tinted Daguerreotype image of a young girl with her hoop toy. The image measures 2 1/2" x 1 3/4" and is sealed within a glazed wood and leather case measuring 3 1/2" x 4". The case is monogrammed 'M. B. 1852'. The image is believed to be that of Mary Best born c.1845 who appears in the genaeology on the reverse of one of the related miniatures. The taped seam of the case has split (easily repaired) otherwise nice sound condition as per my photos below. It is offered here without reserve.
The last three photos are for information only - this sale is for the Daguerreotype only. Please see my other listings for related items.
