    Description

    FORE EDGE PAINTING CDV ALBUM.. This 5 x 7" leather "Album for Photographs" is a masterpiece of Victoriana. It was designed to hold fifty images (some still present but of no inherent worth). The cover is gilt-stamped with the initials of the owner ("J.W.P.") and there are two ornate brass clasps with stylized buckles. What "makes" this piece, however, are the three paintings on the gilt fore edges of the leaves. These paintings show a waterfall in a forest setting, a small stockade on a mountain promontory, and a river running by some cliffs and a wooded shoreline. The leather covers have detached (easily repaired); otherwise the album is in excellent condition. (# This item may require additional shipping charges).
