UNUSUAL CHRISTIAN THEMED CABINET CARD ALBUM.

This is one of the more unusual cabinet card albums I've ever encountered, so I didn't miss my chance to acquire it.
I won't expound on the significance of it, and instead will let the pictures tell the story.

The front of the entire presentation is actually the back cover of the album. It flips down and opens up.
There are a total of 16 cabinet card photographs on 24 pages.
There are 4 blank pages which will hold 1 cabinet card each.
There are 4 blank pages which will hold 4 Cartes de Visite (CDVs) each.


$1200. USD

CABINET CARD ALBUM IN THE GUISE OF CHRIST
SIZE
The entire piece is approximately 18 x 12 x 6 1/4 inches at it's longest and widest points. The album is approximately 10 3/4 x 9 x 1 1/2 inches. The cabinet photos are approximately 6 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches each.
CONDITION
The front image of the presentation, when closed, which is the back cover of the album, needs to be affixed/glued down. It has been separated from the album. That same cover has some soiling. The front cover of the album has scratches and wear. The inside of both covers have soiling. 13 of the pages have tears. We have not pulled the cabinet photos out. From what we can see, there is 1 with significant scratches, 1 with noticeable foxing, 1 with a small stain, and 6 with scuffing and/or white marks. The rest are in good condition, overall, with just minimal wear. The portion of the piece behind the album, the white crucifix and bowl type structure, is in good condition. The fabric on the entire piece has some wear, but is in good condition, overall. The back of the piece has wear.
APPEARANCE
All the photos have very good tones, most are especially rich. The entire presentation speaks for itself. A magnificent find!
