This is a wonderful Victorian photo album dating to the late 19th Century. It has a fantastic embossed brown leather cover and is loaded with pictures.
The front and back cover are leather with highly embossed geometric and floral designs. The center of the front cover has a beautiful maiden riding in a highly stylized boat, or perhaps it is a chariot. There is a metal horseshoe shaped working clasp.
The album is large, measuring 13 1/8" by 11". It is 2 1/4" thick and of substantial weight (slightly over 10 pounds). It contains 38 cabinet cards, 15 CDVS and one tintype. It is so interesting to view all the different manners of dress and to see some of the women's jewelry that we still prize today.
The album is in good antique condition. The pages are all in close to pristine condition, and there are only two cabinet cards missing. The front and back covers are in very good shape, with only some slight wear at the top and bottom of the spine and one missing decorative corner tack. Display it in your home for "instant relatives", or replace it with photos of your own.
