Slightly perplexed


Clear six-plate daguerreotype of a man in a rather cock-eyed pose.  He seems to be slightly perplexed by the whole experience, as evidenced by his furrowed eyebrows.  The image is in excellent condition with a small area of perimeter tarnish.  The plate had original seals and we did an extremely light electrolytic cleaning just to remove some minor yet annoying haze on the perimeter.  It has been resealed with a new glass and is housed in a full worn pressed paper case.
