We could hardly leave these two lovelies in the lurch. They're on the cover of a Victorian photo album that had obviously been separated from the album. The way they looked right at us...well, we were compelled to find them a home.
This does happen to be one of the nicest Victorian celluloid album covers we've seen. Not only are the these two beauties worth a look but the cover itself is embossed with a gilt 'frame' around them and loads of pink flowers (roses?) all over.
The cover measures 8 by 10 1/2 inches. It's about 1/2 inch thick. The back has been covered with gold-tone paper. There are some dings to corners and four tiny holes near right edge where the album's clasp was. The women don't seem to mind...they're leaning on the fence making eye contact. Wouldn't they be fun hanging on the wall of the powder room or boudoir?
