Wonderful antique French Napoleon III or Victorian era carte d’visite or photograph album with ornate marquetry inlay front & back, original embossed leather binding and 25 gold edged thick card pages! Not something we’ve really had all too often in the past. To be completely honest, when we find these we picture ourselves having the inner pages hollowed out to make really fabulous ‘hidden treasure’ boxes similar to those great old French ‘antique leather bound book liquor tantalus’ pieces but never seem to find the time. Anyway, always an idea. As you see it, this one has 25 pages and each can hold two photos (one on each side). Use it as a gorgeous old Victorian photo album or fulfill our original intentions and turn it into a secret box. This one in the style of all those gorgeous French boxes and caskets that we love, with brass, mother of pearl, rosewood & kingwood inlays used by the prominent box and cabinet makers. Wonderful either way and one of several that we’re adding this week so be sure to browse some while you’re with us. Thanks!

Very good condition. This one is missing the clasp straps, as you can see in the images but is in otherwise near pristine condition. See pictures for measurements.
