Gurney Half Plate


Wonderfully posed half plate daguerreotype of a finely dressed man in top hat with a finely dressed woman on each arm by Jeremiah Gurney. My best guess would be his wife and sister. A superb Gurney half plate portrait in wonderful condition. The lower margin this fine late period mat bears Gurney’s blind stamp “J GURNEY 349 BROADWAY”.
