Antique, late 1800's-early 1900's Scrapbook. 132 Victorian/Edwardian images and scraps. About 120 years old! Estate sale find:
This Victorian scrapbook has nine pages, but front and back of each page is LOADED with gorgeous, colorful, images; 132 images total. Pages include chromo-lithographs, seed-catalog fruit and flower illustrations, advertisements, children's portraits, dogs and other animals. Romantic and sweet calling cards, calling-card-stickers, and illustrated advertisement trading cards as well. The large image of a young girl, on the inside of the back cover, is dated 1900.
The pages of the book are very old, tanned and brittle, but the ephemera is in wonderful condition. All images are glued to the pages, front and back, so you actually get 18 pages, each one full of scraps of popular culture of that time period. If you need to see more photos, please contact me.
I'm listing this book under my 'Supplies' section, since it's perfect inspiration and/or material for the collage artist or crafter.
Book measures 13-1/2" X 11-1/4" x 1"
CONDITION: The scrap book cover is separated from it's spine (as found). Most pages are still attached, but barely. The beautiful cover is deeply embossed, green cloth over board, with gilding. Cover shows age and wear to the gilding. It features a framed illustration of a group of babies. . I love the innocence and sweetness of this carefully constructed memento. If you're an artist or creative person like me, I believe the saturated colors, and beautiful images will take your breath away. This one is hard to give up!

We calculate shipping costs using a postage scale & the shipping calculator on the USPS website. Once we send your item off, if we overcharged by $2 or more, we will promptly and happily refund the difference upon request. This also applies to shipments with more than one item purchased.
Shipping cost will be a combination of actual postage plus the cost of any additional packaging material needed to ship the item. In the spirit of recycling, we will ship with as much 'used' packaging materials as possible (which we often buy at a local re-use shop), but never at the expense of protecting your item in transit. That said, once your item leaves our hands at the Post Office, we can no longer be responsible for it. If this makes you uncomfortable, please ask for extra services. Buyer pays for insurance over $50, or expedited shipping. Please contact us before you buy if you would like to make arrangements for these extras so that we can adjust the shipping cost accordingly.
