Found here in the state of Maine we expect this exquisite gold rush era 6th plate portrait is of an adventurous young Mainer sending his photo back to the folks at home. Unfortunately, we donít know who our hero is but, despite his modest dress, he must be doing well at the moment as he is able to afford to have his image captured at the gallery of California photographer James M. Ford. Housed in its original FORD'S - DAGUERREAN GALLERY - CLAY ST. - SAN FRANCISCO - AND - J ST. SACRAMENTO CITY imprinted case, the image may be dated by the fact that Fordís Gallery was established in the late spring of 1854 and the by the end of that year the Sacramento studio had been sold. This pleasing California gold rush era daguerreotype does have some residue on the back side of the glass that is visible when the image is viewed at an angle. This common malady can be corrected by breaking the original seal, cleaning the back side of the glass and resealing the image. A common practice not objectionable to some but we prefer to preserve the photo as original with the period seal intact and so will leave that decision to the new owner. The case is in excellent condition, solid at the hinge with no splits or repairs. A nice all original photograph taken in the later part of the California Gold Rush era (considered to be 1848 through 1855) by a desirable Gold Rush, San Francisco artists. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions askedthree day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
