Victorian decorative objects made of black lacquer with inlaid mother of pearl are some of my favorite things to collect. Books & albums bound in this material are notoriously susceptible to breakage due to the weight of the lacquer being too much for the hinges. This particular album underwent a contemporary repair of its binding with black velour. I’m not the one who fixed it- But I figured none of my customers would complain about this lovely black! The interior is in pretty good shape with some rips; typical wear for these albums. It contains 11 pages with room for 44 cabinet cards. Some pearl loss. Sold at a very low price as is.
