Sea and Clouds by the Famins


Rare carte-de-visit format albumen print circa 1880 showing a study of ocean, sky, and sailboats by Constant Famin. The card is imprinted on reverse "C. Famin Photographe / 26. Avenue D'Orleans" but with the remarkable addition in period pen "et Madame" ("and Mrs. [Famin]"), apparently indicating that Famin's wife was involved in the production of either the original images or their CDV-sized versions.   Price: $350.   ( Inventory# id474e )


A few small spots of browning.

From a group of Famin CDVs, some found signed " Madame Famin" and others simply " Madame", but clearly all with the same intent, see comparison of inscriptions below.
