Here's a really unusual and great looking photo album from around 1900. It measures 7" by 4 1/4" and is just over 2" thick. The top has a beautiful hand tinted photographic print on celluloid of a large sail boat traveling along the shore. The album is covered in a gorgeous rich green velvet. The edges of the album pages are gilded. The latch to close it works perfectly with a spring action that really holds the book closed. The are 12 pages. There are a trade mark embossed in the back of the inside - it has a moose image in the center and the initials "S.B.". I will try to research the maker.
The condition is very good - the pages are tight and there is only normal type of wear. There is one page that has a slight rip by the corner photo slot (see photo). Overall this is well preserved and very appealing.
This exciting store is an eclectic "Curiosity Shop" for the Lover of wonderful old things.
Spring is here and we are celebrating with a BIG SALE !! Don't miss out !
