np: [ca. 1920s]. Oblong 64mo (4.5" by 3.25"). Commercial olive-green, faux-leather string-tied album. 12 gray leaves with 43 small photos adhered to rectos and versos, with 17 hand-drawn, colored border illustrations. About near fine overall, with a bit of external rubbing; leaves clean, if mildly warped. Colors vivid throughout. (Item ID: 21507)

An uncommonly ornamented vernacular album, with intricate border designs on most pages in a variety of styles, borrowing considerable Art Deco and rococo influence. Most designs are primarily floral, though many involve geometric shapes, and in addition to the drawings, several borders also use a kind of silver foil. An impressively well-executed work of amateur design and illustration, on an intimate and charming scale.
