This miniature album is fractionally over 1 inch (2.5cm) in height.
It contains 10 photographs from the mid to late 1800s, reproduced on professional quality matt photographic paper, and these are arranged in date order.
The three sets of photographs shown here will be in the album that you receive – I vary the remaining two sets, so that each album is unique.
The photographs are inset within the decorated pages and the pages have faded “gilt” trim.
The internal spine is reinforced with finest silk for added strength and durability.
When new the binding is fairly tight and has a “memory” – when it has been opened it will need to be put it under a light weight for a while, it will then “remember” to stay fully closed again.
The covers are reproduced from a Victorian album and are made of 200gsm, acid free, lightly textured paper. They have a protective glaze and have the look and feel of very fine leather.
Please note – this handmade item is not a “toy” – it is a “collector’s item.
