This leather-cased Claudet daguerrotype is dateable to c.1843-8.
On the gilt or brass frame a name is stamped: 'I.GUY'. I haven't found anything online to explain this, but I am assuming that this may refer to the frame maker?
Have any members come across this practice, or even this particular name before? Perhaps you know of other Claudet daguerrotypes framed in the same way?
