RARE, MOSTLY FULL TINY Antique Leather Padded Gem Size Tintype Photo Album, Containing Antebellum/Civil War/Victorian Pictures. Made by Remick & Rice, BOSTON, c. DESCRIPTION: This is a nice example of a classic original Antebellum/Civil War/Victorian period gem size photo album. Used to hold this size photo, a popular photo medium of the day, and an especially inexpensive format for young people to save photos of friends and school mates. An inexpensive album size and format, popular with children and young people, and the gem size photos became quite a popular fad for a while. This one contains 12 pages, each of which has openings to hold 4 pictures. Contains a total capacity of 48 photos. BOTH ARE RARELY SEEN. THIS ALBUM IS EXTREMELY SPECIAL AS IT IS VIRTUALLY FULL OF ITS ORIGINAL PERIOD GEMs!!! I count about 40 original tintype photos, which is almost unheard of to still have so many. All the people who were important to the original owner, so many years ago! This album has nice embossed red leather covers, and the page edges are gold, like larger albums. It has the remains of the original single brass clasp, which is missing as they usually are. It is in very good condition overall, including binding and covers and pages and tintype photos. Measures 1 3/4″ x 3″. PLEASE SEE ATTACHED PHOTOS!! This item is in the category “Collectibles\Photographic Images\Photograph Albums”. The seller is “marvinsmom9″ and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped worldwide.
