Welcome to Daguerreobase

Daguerreobase is an online application designed to contain detailed information about daguerreotypes. Members can view, edit and store records of individual daguerreotypes and establish relations to other records based on a wide range of characteristics. This includes collections, owners, creators, hallmarks, housing models, sizes, materials and descriptions.


This project is partially funded by the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP).
