Velvet & Celluloid Album



This worn, red velvet photograph album cover with celluloid ornament has seen better days and has long been separated from its pages. One can only imagine what wonderful items were once inside!

I've made the image of the back slightly larger than the front so it will be a bit more forgiving if you would like to print both covers; the original is a bit warped and as a result the covers are not mirror images.  I love the shield shape of this pretty album and hope you will, too.

Wow...just found your blog through Green Paper... I was immediately drawn to your vintage album. While antiquing over the weekend, I found 2 Victorian albums as well - one is leather and the other is velvet. I couldn't resist adding them to my new and growing collection. :-)

These images are fabulous. I have always adored these albums, though never found one affordably priced and in even this level of condition, so many thanks to you for sharing the scans! ~ Angela
