Out of this world late Victorian photo album crafted from a Gothic black and red leather, featuring a brass lock bar, embossed page ends and milk glass baubles. About halfway full with gorgeous cabinet cards, some photos and post cards from up to the 1930s and some open slots to add your own finds! I have never seen such an excellent antique photo album in all my time collecting! A beautiful addition to any collection, and just spellbinding displayed alongside your other oddities. Lock closure, leatherbound.
Please, if you are looking to remove the existing cabinet cards or alter this piece, consider the wonder that this object survived for so long and contains a family's special portraits. This album should be loved and preserved in its current state.
CONDITION: Very good antique condition. There is some scuffing and cracking to the leather and the binding of the spine is a bit loose, but the leather is amazingly supple and soft. There are some tears to the paper borders and as mentioned, the album is not full of cabinet cards. Lastly, the latch closure is a bit loose -- I imagine this was stored in a way that compressed it down from its original length, so the closure falls open occasionally. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
COLOR: Red leather with black and brass details, milk glass attachments.
MORE INFORMATION: By The Photographic Album. Appears to be made of leather, brass and milk glass.
