Kate McDougall, ca. 1848

Daguerreotype case motif “Maiden with Cornucopia”. There is something so modern about this image! I bet she was like an 1840s hipster girl. And she has this expression on her face like she knows it. Look at those polkadots! I wonder what color the dress really had? The brooch is also very pretty. I cannot really decipher what it depicts, is it a flower, or a bird? Can you see it? And what is she holding in her left hand?
