3 sisters, 6th plate dag "Davis Tribe Henniker NH". The girl on the right looks like the girl who plays Sybil on Downton Abbey!
The surface of the daguerreotype was not easy to paint or color but the desire for color was always strong. Powdered pigment was carefully stippled onto the surface. Most often it is the skin that is tinted but clothing and jewelry were sometimes colored as well. In the 1/4 plate below all the girls have tinted skin and rosy cheeks but only the second girl from the right has color added to her dress and necklace.
