A hand carved wood cover from the artisans of the Black Forest, Switzerland, this is a photo album for the old carte de visite photos that were popular in about 1860-70, helping us to date the album. The spine is leather and is quite good as are the interior empty pages (see images - some foxing, staining). There are no photos inside at this time.
Very good condition for age and type. Clasp works. The leather spine is intact and well-set, still, and there is a slight warp to the wood panels. THE interior pages are secure, not torn away at spine as is often the case. Openings are for the old carte de visite photos, which were 4" x 2". All measurements noted on photos, but it is 7" longest.
Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time.
