Attend NY Photography Fair
The Fair will present over 90 tables and booths of exceptional material, showcasing the offerings of top dealers who have exhibited at AIPAD, Paris Photo, Photo LA, D.C. Antique Photo Show and our annual Daguerreian Society Symposia. 19th, 20th and 21st century photographs and books will be offered, including images from the highest levels of the art to vernacular snapshots. Collectible books, historical prints, and related material will also be available.
Daguerreotypes (1840-1855) are on polished silver so they are very reflective, like a mirror. Since they are on silver and subject to tarnish, daguerreotypes were put behind glass and sealed with paper tape so air cannot tarnish the plate (there often is some tarnish around the edges of the picture). This was then put into a small hinged case, similar to a woman's compact. But, the easiest way to tell if you have a daguerreotype is to see if it has that reflection, just like a mirror. You have to tilt it back and forth to see the image.
