Daguerreotypes and Ambrotype of Young Women, Group of Nine

Lot of 9, featuring:

8 sixth plate daguerreotypes, including 2 portraits showing ladies holding cased images (despite few imperfections, both portraits are extremely clear); a woman posed with her fan (nice, clear portrait); a thoughtfully posed woman holding a pink tinted flower (some surface mottling); 3 additional studio portraits of individual women (overall nice, clear images); and an uncased portrait of four young women, possibly sisters (portrait a bit light). Outside of this view, the rest are housed in full cases, with 4 separated at hinge. 

Ninth plate ambrotype of woman in profile, with band around her face, which is positioned in a manner that suggest that she may be wearing an eye patch, although this cannot be confirmed. Housed in full case.
