Unidentified photographer 
Sleeping Baby 
Daguerreotype, 1/6 plate 
Christopher Wahren Fine Photographs 
Courtesy of Christopher Wahren Fine Photographs (ia906) 
Sixth plate daguerreotype of an apparently sleeping child, with applied hand-coloring in flesh, red, and blue. Original seals intact, housed in full case with split spine.
A really charming image of a baby who to my eye appears to be sleeping, although this is also an effect which period post-mortem images strove to achieve. Flesh tones have been subtly tinted and there is red and blue applied to the cloth he rests upon.
