Antique 1890's Cherubs, Embossed, Celluloid Photo Album With One Cabinet Photo. Gorgeous antique photo album dating to the Art Nouveau era. The cover depicts two cherubs, a male and female, hugging. The background material is purple and lavender and the celluloid picture is done in a light beige with green shrubbery and realistic human coloring for the cherubs. The embossing consists of floral arrangements in each of the four corners and wreath of scrolling around the cherubs. The album measures 10 3/4 inches in length and is 8 3/4 inches in width. It is secured with a snap on post type, plated brass closure that works. Condition: fair to good antique. The front celluloid picture has a few minor indentions round the area of the male cherubs hip and leg area. These do not detract from the front appearance in my opinion. The exterior most cloth binding has come away from the card stock pages, however the pages are still intact with the interior binding material. The card stock pages are decoratively imprinted with pink roses and gold leaves, the edges of the pages are gold leaf and all are in nice antique condition. The one photo of a young man remains in fine condition. Overall, this is a historical keepsake treasure.
