Incredible 19th century stereo daguerreotype in a Mascher case consisting of a double sixth plate-sized images of a woman in a dress with a large bow at the collar. With original seals intact. The woman's face and the bow are beautifully tinted in pink. The images are in very good condition. There is some spotting throughout and staining around the matte. The images are framed and matted and come in an intact Mascher leatherette case which is in very good condition. It exhibits wear that is typical for a case of its age. An inscription on the pop-up stereoscope indicates it is 'Mascher's Improved Stereoscope, Philada. Patent March 8th 1852.' An inscription underneath the stereoscope reads as follows: 'From R.B Appleby's, Dealer in Mascher's stereoscopic daguerreotype cases, and daguerreotype materials in general. No's 14 and 15 Arcade, Rochester, New York.'
