A beautiful, rare survivor, this Victorian mother of pearl cladded photograph album still contains 44 original 19th century family snapshots within and spaces at rear to add 52 more.
The skilfully carved mother of pearl embellishments look stunning atop the geometrically "tiled" background. It is framed in brass that has an attractive embossed Greek key design, the same being incorporated in the clasp fastener
The spine is covered with Victorian burgundy coloured velvet which s now slightly rubbed and fainted, this is expected with age.
Although these beautiful pieces would have been cherished by the family which owned them at the time, relatively few have actually survived in such beautiful, complete condition as this has.
The antique photographs within the album are a real insight into life at the time.
Please see the photographs for clarification.
