This is a wonderful little item!

This fabulous leather photograph album was made in England circa 1890. The photograph album is modelled as a leather purse or wallet and features space for 16 carte de visite (CDV) photographs. The family photographs in the album were mostly taken in Bradford, England. Squeeze both side of the clasp to open, clip the clasp to shut.

Also included is a collection of 32 CDV photographs, some wonderful faces! A lovely lot. We can’t help but wonder who they were, what lives they must have led.

Measuring: Album width 3 5/8 inch (3.5 inch) by height 3.5 inch (9 cm). Depth 1 inch (3 cm).

Condition: Light surface wear to covers, small tear near top lock mechanism. Some wear to the photographs and card mounts, the occasional loose mount. Please note the re-stringing - that each double page is held in via a replacement gilt elastic thread to inner spine.
