Antique Carte de Visite Swedish CDV Photograph of Victorian Man from Kyrkogatan (Göteborg), Sweden


A Swedish CDV of a late Victorian man with mustache, widow maker collar and bow tie, circa 1880-1900 or so. This CDV is from the studio of Oscar Olsson, Kyrkogatan (Göteborg), Sweden.

CDVs maintained popularity in Europe longer than American ones and so this high quality image is circa 1890s.

Carte de Vistes were all the rage in the 1860s - a small photo portrait that could be shared with family and friends, and collected into the first photo albums. By the early 1870s the Cabinet Card began to replace the CDV, but they didn't fully disappear for a couple more decades.

CONDITION: Very good to excellent, some spotting.

SIZE: 54.0 mm (2.125 in) × 89 mm (3.5 in) mounted on a card sized 64 mm (2.5 in) × 100 mm (4 in)
