Item Number: 14286
Collection of original CDV photographs, circa 1880. The first image is a beautiful sepia photograph of a woman wearing a bejeweled headdress, veil, and a myriad of necklaces, bracelets and rings. Second image captures a woman wearing a niqab balancing a large water pot on her head. The last image is an attractive profile photograph of a waterseller with a large container strapped to his body. Barefoot and wearing a turban, he extends his arm with a cup in hand. Photographers Stamp "Fotografia Egiziana/Luigi De Michele" on the back of each photo. Size of each: 2 1/2" x 4". Some very minor markings to the first image, which do not affect woman's image; otherwise all are in excellent condition.
