A client brought us this cabinet card from Poland of her Grandmother to get restored.
The Cabinet card was the style of photograph which was universally adopted for photographic portraiture in 1870. It consisted of a thin photograph that was generally mounted on cards measuring 4¼ by 6½ inches. Our client was not sure of the age of the photograph, but by looking at it you could tell it had “been around the block” or around the world for that matter. There were several nicks and scratches, some more than 2 inches in length to prove its age and travel. Below you will find the before and after restoration.
As they say in Poland, ”All things are good, when old”
