Vignette style CdV for dating please
« on: Thursday 07 March 19 11:44 GMT (UK) »
Please can I have a date for this rather nice CdV.

Sadly, in common with some others from the same group of CdV's this has been rather clumsily trimmed although I suspect that the top left corner retains the original rounding.

I have several other Gibsons with rounded corners which have been dated to mid-late 1860's, (see links on this thread https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=785179.msg6402780#msg6402780 )
which (with my meagre knowledge) is what I would have expected from the design on the reverse  :-\

Any advice appreciated as always.

Hi Jen...The photo corners do looked to be round and the oval vignette was popular in the 1870s. So I would say mid-late decade.

Carol, thanks very much.

I had really thought that, because of the simplicity of the back of the card, it might be late 1860's.

I will have to get better at this dating business!
