Princess Leia


9th plate daguerreotype (2 x 2.5 inches, 5 x 6 cm). ±1850..

This is one of my favorite daguerreotypes. It is very small but still extremely detailed. Notice the stylish hair and the blush on her cheeks.

  1. A very interesting portrait indeed. I found the fingerless gloves curious.
