c. 1900 Early 20th Century, Vivid Abraham Lincoln Painted Portrait on Card on a Patriotic Large Decorated Celluloid Oval Background, Commemorative Family Picture Album Book, Extremely Fine.

This wonderful, Ornate Picture Album has a very large Oval Celluloid Patriotic Surround with a central Portrait Painted Card Image of Abraham Lincoln on front with colorful American Flags draped below as made. The colorful image of Lincoln itself measures 3” x 2.5” placed on a much larger oval celluloid base that measures 7.75” x 5.75”. The Picture Album itself measures 10.5” x 8.5” and is 2.5” thick. Its cover has blue felt fabric of which each corner is protected by an ornate metal filigree. The lock is a very unique mechanical device that pulls up and over a pin in order to secure the album. Inside the book are 13 pages designed to hold cabinet cards. Each page has floral designs and gold-gilt edges. The inside front and back pages are similar but are plain. This Album is full of family photos and also includes some Postcards relating to Woodrow Wilson and Abraham Lincoln. There is even a small card with an image of a Black Soldier identified to the Battle of the Crater. This was apparently a military family, as evidenced by the several images of men in Uniform and a Discharge Certificate tipped into the back of the album.
