Mitch Young's Collection Spanish Doll Daguerreotype This is my newest acquisition out of Spain. 1/6th plate daguerreotype of a sweet little girl in her off shoulder dress holding her china head doll. The dress is actually tinted peach and the dolls dress is tinted lilac. Image came in a full case and has old paper seals. The image dates from the early 1850's by the style of the mat. She looks very proud to be holding her doll and did not move a bit which is somewhat rare in children daguerreotypes.
from the lost silent film to the stars directed by georges melies, 1906
