Plate IV.

Articles of glass.

The photogenic images of glass articles impress the sensitive paper with a very peculiar touch, which is quite different from that of the China in plate III. And it may be remarked that white china and glass do not succeed well when represented together, because the picture of the china, from its superior brightness, is completed before that if the glass is well begun. But coloured china may be introduced along with glass in the same picture, provided the colour is not a pure blue: since blue object affect the sensitive paper almost as rapidly as white ones do. On the contrary, green rays act very feebly–and inconvenient circumstance, whenever green trees are to be represented in the same picture with buildings of a light hue, or with any other light coloured objects.
