PD11: 1842c Royal Blue & Gold Passe Primitive Tinted German or Swiss Wedding Daguerreotype:
Bride and groom wedding day dags are rare and highly sought after, especially ones from this early. The pose is unusually informal & relaxed as both show off their rings. The groom may be in military uniform while the bride wears a gold tinted cross necklace. If it wasn’t for the slight tinting (one of the earliest know images displaying tinting – first devised in 1842) and application of gold highlights, I would have dated this piece to 1841 – it is just that primitive. Comes with it’s original and incredibly rare protection slipcase (also seen on some 1839 American images) which have almost always been damaged & discarded from other early dags from this period. Archivally resealed with Filmoplast P90 while retaining the original blue edging paper. The plate has some obvious condition issues tot the lower extremities but the faces remain strong as does the primitive tinting. The royal blue & gold passé package is especially stunning and visually pleasing!
