French Hand tinted Daguerreotype Artist Portrait w/ Faux Tortoise Shell Mat

Daguerreotype collecting has been getting hard over the past few years. There has been less and less interesting images coming up for sale that is why I am glad someone brought this image in to the store, a hand tinted French portrait of an artist. The frame is a molded black frame with some damage to the top right corner. The mat is a wonderful faux tortoise shell over a white paper mat.
The daguerreotype does have scratches on the glass but the image is still sharp as well as the blue hand tinting on the artist smock. The back of the frame has the original paper, a french advertisement and states the photographer is Thalamas.
The image is approx. 2 3/4" x 3 1/2" and the frame is approx. 9 1/2" x 8".
Please email me with questions or if you need more photographs.
