Cabinet Card Photographs, Antique Black White Portraits, Babies in White Christening Gowns, 1800s Fine Art Photography, Children Art

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Three adorable antique cabinet cards show Victorian babies in their crisp white christening dresses. These black and white photographs date to the mid to late 1800s and are affixed to cardboard (so they could be easily displayed in a cabinet). The photography studios' names are printed on the bottom.

All three photos were shot in a studio, with the babies propped up on a fabric or fur covered chair. Such sweet chubby faces! These would be fun framed as a group, perhaps as nursery decor, or they'd be nice individually as well.

Cabinet cards were introduced in the 1860s, with peak popularity from 1870s to 1890s. They were a nice size (4 1/4 x 6 1/2 inches) for displaying in a cabinet, hence the name.

The photographers were all from central Illinois: Shoolery & Hoge, W.B. Atkins, and H. Jarvis. The Shoolery one is dated 1892.

All three photographs are in very good condition.
