About This Image

Two different daguerreotypes in wooden oval frames and brass and paper mats. Probably the sister of the woman in item #6030, which has a label for the photographer on the back and is in identical frames and paper seals; these all came as a group (the two women are obviously related), hence the attribution. Seals are intact and the daguerreotypes are uncleaned. Pierre Eugene Fixon was a daguerreotypist and photographer who worked in Paris from the 1840s-1870s. His work was exhibited in the 1849 and 1855 expositions. His first studion was at rue Vivienne 33 until about 1870. After that he moved to rue d'Enghien 28.

Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their VAT and other custom's oriented charges.
