Title   Gibraltar Souvenir

Binding   Lacquer Boards

Book Condition   Very Good

Seller ID   002635

A mother-of-pearl inlay photo or card album souvenir for Gibraltar from Japan! A true curiosity. The front board has a naive-style illustration of the Rock of Gibraltar and the village at its base made with inlay pieces of mother-of-pearl employed along with painted work on the laccquer. The interior, in contrast, features leaves of color woodblock floral and landscape designs, all quintessential Japanese, with thin, elastic bands in which to secure cards or photos. There are seven free leaves, plus the inside of the outer boards, all so decorated, with none of the slots used. The spine is a faux leather card that is quite convincing, and the rear board is simply black lacquer. The album is 24 by 17 cm. Minor surface losses to the lacquer at corners and a few small spots on rear board.
