      Looks like a very old daguerreotype from around the era of the early 1860's, very beautiful !
    2. scottvez scottvez, 4 years ago
      Not a daguerreotype-- looks to be a tintype or maybe an ambrotype.

      The "frame" is called a thermoplastic case and was typically used to house "hard" images (daguerreotypes, ambrotypes and tintypes).

      Your image and case dates from about the late 1850s- 1860s.

      Looked up your case in Nineteenth Century Photographic Cases and Wall Frames by Paul Berg.

      Your case is identified as 2-77 "Pears and Cherries" and is a ninth plate case made by Littlefield, Parsons and Co. and should be marked as such inside (behind the image).
