Tall skinny quarto [40 cm] 3/4 red velour, with raised boards, and a modern metal clasp (only partially present). The front board is decoratively stamped in gilt, and elegantly illustrated with a portrait of a woman picking cherries on a ladder. Each page consists of two mounts, rounded at the head, and with slots measuring 3 3/4" x 5 1/2". The mounts have sporadic pencil notations below them, and occasional old tape repairs to short tears in the edges. The paper backing is missing from one of the mounts. The front board is a bit rubbed, and the rear board is lightly soiled. Very good. Item #56091
A charming way to display one's photographs or mementos.
