Red leather travelling photograph frame


The late Victorian concertina folding frame measures 7¼ x 5½ ins [185 x 140mm] when folded and opens to reveal four glazed pockets for cabinet card portraits. The outside has wear and rubbing to the edges and hinges but the viewing side, which has additional gilt rules, remains clean, bright, and fresh. These frameswere particulalry used by travellers or those away from home to remind themselves of family and friends when they were far away. We have inserted copies of cabinet cards of a huntsman and three Indian Princes. These can be included in the sale and work well for decorative purposes. We stress that these are modern copies made by us from originals in our possession.               apr16/1
