Bored Lady

Daguerreotype, 6th plate, around 1850.

Look at the bored lady! (Not to mention her husband's beard...).


  1. Funny. It's rare to see such an expression.

    I also found the pattern on the dress interesting.

  2. Yes, it is a nice dress, it looks a bit Chinese. The husband also wears stylish clothes.

  3. I was thinking the same thing. I think it's the cut of the sleeves. I was also curious about his fob, but it looks like the detail is just not there.


I love to read your remarks and suggestions!
