Here is an amazing period presentation of two English ninth plate daguerreotypes.
They are mounted on period gilt-paper. There was a front glass. I have never seen anything like this before, either in America or Europe. Most American dags weee mounted in casess. I'm not sure how common this was a way of displaying are archiving dags in England. We have not noted it in America. We have found many Americn dags in cases, but we do not yet commonly see European dags. Either cased images or other presentations like this one. We know they were made in Europe. They obviously first appeared in France because Daguerre himself was French. Why we do not see many European dags we are just not sure. Of course our assessment is based primarily on internet sales. Perhaps for some reason dags are not being sold through the interbet in Europe. This is strange because Europeans do sell many photographs.
