6" x 5 1/2" x 2"

Monogrammed O.E. Ely. The family members are from the Ely & Pierce families from the Milwaukee, WI area. All but one are CDVs (cartes de visite) that one is a tintype. The album was made by W.L. Foster & Co. of Detroit, Michigan. It is a quality album in excellent condition with gorgeous clasps. The spine has embossed gilded letters spelling out "ALBUM". The pages have rectangular & oval openings and are decorated with gilded ornamentation.They are clean & bright but 2 of them have names in ink. Please see my photos. The front and back end papers have an attractive pattern and are intact as is the title page and clean index. No torn leather or splits, just slightly bumped corners. The album is all original. The pages move with ease. Displays very nicely. Will hold 40 CDVs.
