Sepia Cabinet Card of American Lady with Guard Chain & Watch Pocket, late 19th CenturySepia Cabinet Card of American Lady with Guard Chain & Watch Pocket, late 19th Century

This sepia cabinet card features a standing young lady wearing a guard chain with a slide close to the neck. The end of the guard chain loops up for a watch that would have been included in a velvet watch pocket. The fabric of the pocket appears to match the collar. Her dress would be typical for the late 19th century. The condition of the cabinet card is nice and crisp. There is a minimal amount of spotting on the photo (with one little spot possibly on her cheek) and a tear or unevenness of the image on one side. On the back is the photographer’s name, J.W. Bailey, Dowagiac, Michigan. This image clearly shows the fashion and accessories of the era. Width 4.25 ins x height 6.5 ins. (11cm x 16.5cm). This item appears in my book, "How the Watch was Worn - A Fashion for 500 Years". Registered Air Mail Post to the USA would be $13.00. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
