Description
A photograph album containing six 5.25" X 3.5" studio photographs of children. The surface of the album is covered in red velvet, including the interior; three letters ("FRC"), made of metal and decorated with a foliage pattern, are attached to the front cover. Album unfolds three times to reveal the six photos, which are housed in individual slots; two of the slots are empty. Images include (clockwise from top left) a full-length portrait of a girl wearing a dress with a bow and plaid sash; a portrait of a baby in a dress with lace-like trim; a portrait of a baby seated in an upholstered chair; a full-length portrait of a young child with a flower on his or her shoulder; a portrait of a girl in 18th-century costume; and a full-length portrait of a girl wearing a dress with gathers at its bodice.
