  1. My wife says that, in her opinion, the woman was thinking to someone else, when the photo had been snapped.
    He he he!

    1. She looks a bit bored, a bit sad, a bit I don't know exactly. These are the photos I like the most.

      Yes, I know. It is a question of family. Her father had been an artist full of fantasy. He did even draw 2 banknotes of the Republic of Estonia, used from 1990 until 2011 :-)

  4. Hi Rob, this is a very good looking couple. I like the way that these were framed too, somebody took a lot of care to make these photos extra special.

    Thanks so much for stopping by to see me.

    1. Maybe. Life was harder those days, she may look older than she is.

  7. Nice set of daguerreotypes and in good condition considering they date to 1850. This is an attractive couple. I think the woman is closer in age with her husband than she appears. It's easy to imagine what she would look like today with a change in hairstyle and some makeup, I think she would look great. Do you find most of your daguerreotypes on Ebay or antique stores? You have such a nice collection.

    1. I find them on Ebay, there are not many antique stores in the neighborhood. And there are not many Dutch Daguerreotypes around.
