9.5" x 7.25"
Stunning tooled leather covers with embossed gilded ornamentation and 8 porcelain rests having brass surrounds. The gilding is as new. The working brass clasps are ornate and original to the album which dates from c1870 or a little earlier. There are 19 gild edged pages having openings for 80 CDVs plus 13 rectangular and 5 oval openings to hold 18 Cabinet Cards.
All pages are in superb condition with only 1 opening having 2 small tears. Quite amazing for an album of this age! The front inside cover page is also in fine condition.
The album's spine has been re-enforced on one side, with good results. A crack runs vertically down the spine which looks worse in my photos due to the bright sunlight I photographed it in. The same goes for the short tear at the top of the spine. The album looks fantastic in normal light.
The album was never separated. It is sound. The pages turn with ease. A beauty! Almost impossible now to find an album of this size & quality in BRIGHT RED!
