Excellent Antique Leather Civil War Padded Carte de Visite Photo Album, Perfect to Hold Your Collection. DESCRIPTION: This is a nice example of a classic original Antebellum/Civil War period Carte de Visite photo album.
Used to hold carte de visite size photos, the most popular photo medium of the day. THIS ONE IS COMPLETELY EMPTY, SO IT WOULD BE A PERFECT WAY TO HOLD YOUR OWN ORIGINAL COLLECTION OF PERIOD CdVs!! This is a large album, containing.
25 pages, with room for 2 standard size carte de visite photos per page, for a total capacity of 50 CdV's. NICE BROWN LEATHER EMBOSSED PATTERN ON THE FRONT & BACK, gold trimmed pages, and a matched pair of perfectly working original brass hinges (One or more of these hinges is often missing, but BOTH OF THEM ON THIS ALBUM ARE PERFECT). The album is in very good condition overall, including binding and covers and pages. It probably would be rated excellent, but the last page has black stains, possibly ink stains, as shown.This is just on the inside of the last page. Large album, measuring 5 1/2" x 6" x 2 thick. This is one of the nicest Civil War albums, overall, that I have ever had.
