A very interesting portrait indeed. I found the fingerless gloves curious.
A wonderful daguerreotype image - thanks for sharing it.
What a lovely portrait! thank you for sharing. Is she from your collection? What country is she from? I just discovered your blog, it is a pleasure browsing your posts! I live in the Netherlands too (not far from Amersfoort), and I also have a blog with historical finds, you might want to have a look, there are other Leia's in there too, for example on this post here: http://www.costumecocktail.com/2015/05/30/1101/. I hope you don't mind that I shared your photo from this blogpost.
