This is a beautiful set of 2 Victorian Shakespeare related CDV photographs found together in Lostwithiel, Cornwall, England. The photographer for the portrait etching of Shakespeare is marked as "Gustav Schauer, Photographisches, Kunst-und Verlags Institut, Berlin, Germany, Grosse Friedrichs-Strasse 188", which is printed on his German advertising backmark. It also has has a small printed info vignette on reverse of Shakespeare 1564-1616, see photo.

The other CDV photo has 12 wonderful sepia Stratford upon Avon scenes:

  • Shakespeare's Birthplace
  • A portrait with his signature
  • Ann Hathaway's cottage
  • Interior of  Shakespeare's birthplace
  • Interior of Shakespeare's house
  • Interior of Shakespeare's birthplace
  • Shakespeare's School and Guild Chapel
  • Shakespeare's Birthplace Home
  • Church, from the Meadows
  • Church of the Holy Trinity
  • Shakespeare's Bust
  • Church of the Holy Trinity

Amazingly, these scenes all for on a 2.5 x 4 inch carte de visite photo. This photo is marked "Registered L.S.P.C." on photo front, which is assumed to be the publisher. The reverse is blank. 

This set will be sent in 2 new clear rigid sleeves, for protection. These "Album fillers" were beautiful CDV photos made to fill in the empty spaces in early CDV photo albums, between the various family photos. They can be humorous, cultural, political, erotic, playful, jokes, poems, current news, cultural and regional topics and advertising related in nature. This is just a wonderful set we were happy to find.

Size: 4.5 x 2.5 inches each, see photo
