The image is almost certainly a tinted salt print mounted between two pieces of glass and matted to appear similar to a daguerreotype. Most of the original paper seal is still on the glass, but where it is missing the edge of a piece of paper is visible between the pieces of glass. It is translucent when held to a strong light. Overall 6 ¾ inches by 8 ½ inches.

Condition: there are a few light spots under the glass where presumably the paper and the glass are not touching, but otherwise the image is in excellent condition, as is the mat.

A striking image executed in a different way than was usual in this country.
