      Sorry, but none of these are daguerreotypes. A daguerreotype is on a thin metal sheet-- similar to a tintype. A dag has a heavy silver coating, that gives it almost a mirror surface that will completely disappear when canted.

      The tinted lithograph in the center looks nice-- is that a doll between the two?

      It depends-- who is the print maker?

      It has a desirable subject matter.
