back of a cabinet card portrait

cabinet card photos

These are some wonderful small cabinet card photos I picked up in Utrecht in a little store specializing in picture post cards and other ephemera. The top image shows the gilt studio information for the photographer– one of the loveliest I’ve seen. It’s on the back of the first photo card, the oval, which is embossed in a very soft oval so that the photo bows out like a cameo within the card. I’ve never seen that before; the effect is very pleasing.
