In good condition with signs of wear

A beautiful old photo album of which the leather has been processed into a true gem in an artistic and traditional manner, nowadays this is no longer done in such a way because of the time pressure. The leather outside sheets are pressed together by a solid metal snap lock (see photos) The 16 beautifully embellished inner sheets are covered with gold paint on the outside. The second inner sheet mentions "Album" very artfully done. (handcraft?) According to me the album dates from about the late 19th to early 20th century! Inside the 52 cutouts of the photos are beautifully finished with an eye for details. Of course it has signs of wear (e.g. brown discolouration) given the age of the album. I have tried to depict these imperfections in as much detail as possible. All in all, despite the minor signs of wear and tear and imperfections, it remains a very interesting item which is a beautiful witness of its time! The dimensions of the album are 28.50 x 22.50 x 6 cm, weight 1.8 kg. The album will be well protected and shipped with code via BPOST. P.S. enclosed are still 4 old photos as silent witnesses!! In one (photo) cut-out a piece of paper is missing (see photo), this is still in possession and therefore sent along with the album! (for any restoration)
