British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

I have a beautiful stereo Dag, written on the back in pencil is "Flight into Egypt". The subject is Mary and baby Jesus on an ass, the material is white, could be marble or porcelain and there is nothing to indicate scale. I have searched the internet for the subject without luck, but somebody thought it worth photographing during the 1840s. The glass is cracked and needs to be replaced, I might find out more when I unwrap the image. I have taken advice about doing this so happy to undertake the job, but any further advice would be welcome. I would like to know who took the picture, UK or USA if the note on the back is contemporary, when and if possible where. Not much to ask for! Will post an image when I find out how to. DonB
