Wonderful Antique [ Circa 1880's] albumen print on convex glass of a Lady in period costume carrying a large vase with flowers and signed Conrad Hiesel. This art form is rather rare and was popular during the Victorian period . The wood and gesso frame appears to be original to the piece and very well executed. Has been in my personal collection for many years and is being deaccessioned . Condition is excellent [ check photos ]. The white marks in photos #1-2 are caused from reflective glare on the glass and not flaws.
