Victorian Celluloid Velvet Photo Album Woman Playing Harpsichord With Cherubs Angels Flowers
The celluloid cover on this Victorian photo album is exceptionally lovely with a a trio of cherubs dropping pink and white flowers to the young woman playing what looks like a harpsichord. The corners have embossed detail and the book retains the original gold tone latch. The back and spine covers are the velvet type with flowers and swirls in various shades of rich browns with black accents. The book measures approximately ten and a half inches by eight and a half inches by two inches and can hold 16 large photographs with openings of approximately five and a quarter inches by three and five eighths and 32 smaller photos with openings of three and three eighths by two inches. There are a couple of minor light scratches on the celluloid cover, wear on the bottom right corner, light wear to the gilding on the page edges, and some discoloration and tearing on the internal pages with some tears taped at some point in time. These signs of use are relatively minor and expected given the age of the book and overall this antique photograph album is in excellent condition and very beautiful.
