MARKDOWN SALE ON TOOLED LEATHER 4 1/2 X 6 INCH CDV ALBUM THAT COULD WORK FOR LARGER DOLL PHOTO SIZE! Although not perfect, this tooled leather ALBUM for Civil War Era Carte de Vista photographs is beautiful! The design on the front is similar to a fleur de lis, but it is carved out in the leather and you can take a look for yourself to see how you would describe it. The presentation is just stunning, partly because of the gold gilted pages and also the word ALBUM is in gold on the spine. There are a "few" real old pictures in this album, one being a tintype I believe, but it looks like someone has copied "some" pictures, and cut them to size to go into the album. There are notes on the back of a couple of them with some information about the pictures.
Sadly, at some time or another, someone has allowed this wonderful book to get wet, and so there is some soiling to the inside pages, although the very back ones are the worst. I don't know if there is a way to clean or take away the spotting, but there is some need for tender loving care. The gold clasp is on the top, but the part that folded over to hook into the top clasp is gone. I feel sure one could be found and this repaired, as you can still see where the little holes are where it fit.
I have seen these sell for all prices, and my price reflects the imperfections mentioned, plus what you can see for yourself in the pictures. I am only allowed 9 pictures, so if you need more, I can send them to you, but I will show the worst so no surprises will be had.
I am always happy to combine purchases to save you on shipping, so please be sure to let me know if you are interested in other items I have listed.
Thanks so much for shopping with me, and God Bless You! May we honor Him in all we say and do!
