DAMAGED Littlefield Parsons Dag Union Constitution Case 1/4 Plate Daguerreotype. The photos load incrementally below depending on your connection, please allow a few seconds for the photos to appear.
EMPTY case with damage (also has mild warp). Exterior measures 4-7/8" x 3-15/16". Will hold a quarter plate (3.25" x 4.25").Upper hinge broken out of thermoplastic leaving crack through that area and extending across to the other hinge/rivet (see the crack going across the spine seam). Appears someone tried to glue or epoxy in that area (you can see a small blob). On that same half of the case (with the broken out hinge half) there is an edge crack on the bottom side. Noticeable corner chips, chipping around both face edges (both halves of the case have chipped edges on that lip or overhang around each face).
The velvet pillow is damaged with missing areas. Some interior velvet border damage on plate side. The case latch or catches are not functional and I assume incomplete. Maker paper liner has small bottom tear but basically intact with a pencilled number upper right.Details on both outer faces of the case show wear to high points. See photos for condition details. I don't have a way to arrange for a local pick-up of this item, I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
