Made in New York but we don't know the maker. See the gilded inside front page. What we do know is the seller. Please see the close-up of the retailer's label. Deeply embossed leather boards featuring 8 original porcelain rests. The brass hardware is also original. The page edges have an embossed floral motif. There are 25 pages for 50 CDVs (carte de visit)all featuring the early rectangular gild outlined openings. There are 3 tears and 1 badly "fixed" page (old brown scotch tape). Most pages have mild foxing. The end papers are there but were splitting and had to be re-enforced with acid free tape. Care must be taken when handling this c1863-1865 antique CDV photo album. Some flaking to the leather. All in all a quite sound and attractive old album. Just one of many I am offering here. 6" x 5.25" x 2.5"
