We have here another wonderful find in this very Special group of Signed Studio Antique Cabinet Portrait Photographs.
Most of the photographs are from the 1920’s. One of them however, appears to be quite a bit earlier – possibly late 1890’s to early 1900’s. It features three women and one gentleman seated on a front porch. On the reverse side of its board written in pen is: “We 4”. There are several that are duplicates. There are also some people’s names on the reverse side.
The Portrait Studios featured here are:
The Misses Chilberg of Rock Island, Illinois
C. W. Sandstrom – Moline, Illinois
J. White – Vancouver, B.C.
Carlson – (no location is given)
Arone (name is difficult to read accurately. Portland Ore
J. Harrington – Moline, Ill.
In addition, there is a Price List for the Home Portraits by the Misses Chilberg. For example, the list tells us that a 5×7-in trimmed print in grey or sepia brown finish mounted in 7 1/2 in by 9 in easel folder costs $20.00 per dozen.
There are also several envelopes containing exposed proofs and small portrait pictures post cards. Some of the envelopes which are part of this collection are addressed to a family by the name of Andrews.
These Antique Cabinet Photos are quite a find and should be a fantastic addition to your collection. They can only continue increasing in value as more and more time goes by bringing you many hours of pleasure and compliments Galore!
