Miniature Leather Album with Tin Type Group of Black Children #197-36

Status: Available Price: $595.00
Fantastic very early brown leather album with gold gilt designs front and back and on the spine, saying "Album." Inside are superb tiny tin type pictures of children, finely dressed ladies and gentlemen, but the most significant picture is that of a grouping of black children, so rare from that era. c. 1865, perhaps even earlier. They are posed very artistically by a professional photographer and, of course, all the picture were taken professionally. The children are all well dressed and darling. Size of album is 1 1/2" wide x 1 3/4" high, 7/8" deep, a rare small size. Nice brass clasp as shown in good working order. Edges of pages are gold gilt. There is a little bit of aging and wear which is commensurate with the album's age, but overall is in lovely condition. This album came from an estate in Maine. There are no pictures missing.
