An antique photo or cabinet card album featuring a green velvet cover and gold embossed pages. The front cover is decorated with a metal band showing oak leaves and a Roman soldier cameo medallion in the center. The closure is decorative metal and we find pointed metal feet on the underside.
This is filled with a total of 33 Victorian portraits of men, women and children. Some are fading with age and a few have foxing. The pages are thick and each cabinet card is framed with Art Nouveau floral decoration. The pictures slide into the page at the bottom of each frame.
The entire book measures 11 inches tall and 9 inches wide and is over 3 inches thick. So thick in fact that we can not keep the latch secured.
