If you are familiar with my shop, you know I carry a large selection of Antique photograph albums, especially those with floral or other beautifully decorated pages. This album dates to circa 1900. The cover is brown embossed leather with an Aesthetic design of classic shapes, florals, and a bird. The brown leather is highlighted in gold. The clasp is very ornate and intact. The album measures 8 3/4 x 11 1/2". There are a total of 17 pages. The pages have openings on both sides for cabinet photographs (16) as well as Carte de Visite photos (64). There are 8 floral chromolithograph pages. There is writing inside the front cover with a name and acquired date of 1962. This is not the age of the album but the date acquired by the owner listed. I would rate the album as good, useable, condition. There is typical soil, some rips in the photo mount openings. The color pages are very good. The binding is loose and is shown in the last photo. This can be easily repaired.
