An elegant portrait from the photography studio of Bradley and Rulofson, San Francisco, CA. Their studio was considered the best on the West Coast - they won numerous competitions including a gold medal at the centennial celebrations in Philadelphia in 1876. For more info on Bradley see:, and for Rulofson see:

This CDV measures approximately 2.5"x4". This cdv is also unusual because of how it was printed. Unlike most cdvs that are printed on light weight matte paper - this was printed on heavy weight gloss paper and then adhered to the cardstock back. They then raised the oval image to frame it even further. This is a beautiful example of high end early photography. The cdv is in very good vintage condition.


As a mixed media artist, my wife and I are constantly traveling to flea markets, estate sales, and auctions. Over time, we have acquired more items than we can use, and so we are selling the rest here! In general, all of the items we sell will have some wear and age to them. Items may have some nicks, dings, tears, folds, and fading, and the photographs may have bent corners, be faded, etc. But because the items are vintage and/or antique, some wear should be expected. We will try to clearly identify all wear and damage to each item or group of items when they are listed. However, if you have any questions, please contact us before purchase because all items are being sold AS-IS.

All items are shipped carefully packed to arrive safely at your door. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have have.
