AB-8074                 NEW!                   $245

6" x 5" celluloid covered autograph/postcard album from the early 1900s! This album was never used and has 45 pages that are all clean and not torn. Originally the album was either an autograph album which were popular at the time or could have been used to hold postcards or calling cards. The front only has a wonderful celluloid covered scene of a Teddy Roosevelt white bear. He's wearing glasses, holding a picnic basket and using a walking stick!! The scene is surrounded by embossing and the background color on the front is a deep green. The lithograph scene under the celluloid is signed by the artist in the lower right corner. It says "copyright 1906 J. Davis." (The line you see on the signature is on the lithograph print under the celluloid). The binding is tight. The back and binding has the original blue velvet and the velvet is evenly worn on the binding. Really fun and unusual item, great for the Roosevelt collector too!
