"Sun, double JP with lamb, 40"
Large thick shawl. Spanish comb in her hair.

This photo is from the same studio as the images below.
Identified by the same gothic chair, curtain and flower basket.
The other images were found on the internet.

So far, it looks like women were always posing to the left, and the men always to the right.

The curtain from the first, second and seventh photo are compared below:
(in the second photo, the curtain is hanging upside down. amd turned here for comparison)

The basket can be seen in the second and eight picture:

There are several other photographers who used a similair chair.
Below are 4 different chairs, the first is "our" chair. The second was used
by Robert H. Vance, a daguerreotypist active in Chile (South-America).
His chair is missing one of the pointy bits on top. The third and fourth
are by unknown artists but both the points and the board are different.
