This is an original early albumen photographic print from about 1870, showing a sculpture of a chariot (biga) being drawn by two magnificent horses. The sculpture is in the Vatican Museum, and there is an inscription on the back of the mount which reads "Biga, Vatican"

The details are sharp and the white sculpture is dramatic against the dark brown background. It's mounted on heavy card stock, as was customary for photos of that era.

This view into the past is collectible, and when framed it will be a sophisticated addition to your home or office.

Silver photographic prints from the albumen paper era (1855-1895) generally show some form of deterioration, or possess spots and blemishes of chemical origin that distinguish them as actual photographic prints. Most albumen prints are faded and yellowed to some degree, either overall or in localized areas.

The print size is approx. 9"x14.5", the mount is 10.5" x 16" Both are in good condition, with normal signs of wear. The card stock has cut, rounded corners.
