It has a lovely art nouveau erased relief to the front and back. The front has the words “ALBUM SOUVENIR” within the lovely art nouveau relief.

This piece is in all original pre-owned condition with age related wear and marks. The last photo has an old sellotape repair holding it to the inner place. The locket does not close properly so will benefit from some adjustment of the clasp.

The case has a genuine patina so I will leave it up to the buyer whether to clean it or not.
