Daguerreotype of Unidentified Woman by Thomas M. Easterly, 1850s
She wears many pieces of jewelry including a cross necklace with large beads, earrings, a brooch, rings, bracelets, and chains hanging from the sash on the waist of her dress. The earrings, brooch, chains, and rings are colored with gold pigment. She also holds her finger in a book that is propped up on her lap. She leans one arm on a cloth-covered table.
