Stunning! The most delicate painting of Wild Roses and Butterflies adorn the front cover of this rare Victorian Photo Album. Both leather covers exhibit some scuffing which rather adds to the overall patina. There are 16 gild edged photo pages with room for 23 Cabinet Cards and 28 CDVs (Cartes de Visite). All openings are outlined with gilding. The corners of each page has a Gilded Fleur-de-lis type emblem. All pages are as new except for 4 small tears. No foxing, no ink notations. A lovely floral inside cover page surprises the viewer. The end pages are Moiré patterned paper. The heavy album sits on 4 brass rests. The clasp is original and in good working order. All pages turn with ease. No damage or repairs to the leather binding. c1880 and a wonderful example of hand painted flowers and critters! A Victorian treasure! 10 3/4" x 8 3/4" x 2 1/4" (27.3 x 22.3 x 5.8 cm). FREE SHIPPING
