Two CDVs c.1863 - 1865
Two similar CDVs from my personal collection today. The first is a lovely lady photographed in the mid 1860s by Robert Knott, Little Bolton. I love the trimming on her bodice, her agate brooch and rosette belt.
The second CDV was taken by Cundall, Downes and Co which dates it between 1863 and 1865. Particularly like the trim with the little dangles :)
