photographs of prominent persons were widely published and traded among friends. Albums for the collection and display of cards became a common fixture in Victorian drawing rooms.
The possibilities for displaying these are truly endless! Miniature antique ephemera evokes your dollhouse's imaginary history!
Each set contains 9 pieces. Each piece is a high resolution miniature copy of a real antique cabinet card. My photographs of these photographs do not do the clarity and detail justice!
The 9 different celebrities include:
Napoleon III (President of French 2nd Republic)
Abraham Lincoln (16th US president)
Sojourner Truth (abolitionist and women's rights activist)
John Wilkes Booth (famous actor and Lincoln assasin)
Oscar Wilde (Irish author and wit)
Sarah Bernhardt (most famous stage actress of 19th and early 20th century)
Wild Bill Hickok (legendary gunfighter and figure of the Wild West)
Sitting Bull (Native American chief)
Henry Morton Stanley (explorer and discoverer of Livingstone)
Dimensions (vary slightly): 3/4" x 3/8"
