Antique Victorian Photo Album (celluloid) W/ Music Box (yankee Doodle / Dearic):
Antique Victorian Photo Album Music Box
This album features a Victorian scene of two young children one sitting in a chair and the other kneeling in front leaning in to give a kiss on the cheek. Cover does show signs of its age with some scratches and corner damage to the overlay (SEE PICTURES) Brass clasp still locks. Bottom is thick leathery paper covered, and is missing a piece and torn.
Locking brass clasp that holds it closed and brass feet.
The outer binding is velvet like material and the outer edges of pages are metallic colored. Once opened the binding is in tact and in excellent condition considering age.
There are eleven pages for photos which all have varying degrees of damage that includes tears to the paper at the insert point, torn or missing dividers and as you can see from the pictures there are corner fasteners on a majority of the pages. The back page is missing the fasteners that hold it firm to the box allowing access to the music box, as a result the photo album will shift some until it is repaired.
Music box appears to have been over wound and will need repair. The key is locked up but can be moved slightly. When the key is moved the notes do play. I did not move it much in fear of breaking it.
Paper under music
1) Yankee Doodle
Album measures 11 ¾” x 9 ¼” x 3 ¾” tall

I do my absolute best to pack each item with the utmost care. I have had to learn the hard way that the various shipping services are not exactly gentle with items.
