MKL17187.i

A beautiful and playful Victorian Crystoleum print set within its original gold painted frame. The crystoleum process was a method of applying colour to an albumen print, popular from c. 1880 – c. 1910. An albumen print was pasted face down to the inside of a concave piece of glass therefore giving a domed effect to the picture. This is a beautiful example. some damage to frame, please see photographs.
