#P1218 1/6 Daguerreotype, teenage gentleman by BLACK daguerreotypist
Sixth plate (2.75" by 3.25") daguerreotype of teenage
gentleman. He is very well dressed and looks so sophisticated. He is holding what looks to be a large velvet image case. The
now famous Black daguerreotypist Augustus Washington's gallery is imprinted on the velvet pad. "WASHINGTON GALLERY 136 Main
St. Hartford Conn." Housed in an excellent case with different front and back covers BUT has an intact original spine.

CONDITION: the plate is in very good to excellent condition with some tarnish, a small brown spot not well seen in the
scan to the left and just a little above his head. Two marks on the plate in the upper right backdrop and one small mold spider
above his shoulder on the right. I resealed the dag with a new glass and Filmoplast P90.
