Looking for the realised and estimated price?

Description: That is the camera used for cartes de visite, the small-format images that were supplanted by the larger cabinet cards, or tintypes of the same size. Four images would be made on the same glass negative, and the individual images would be cut from the print. There is a large lens holder at the bottom of the tripod, so this camera could accommodate both formats. The date “1879” is written in pen beneath the print. Cabinet card by G. W. Browning, Chicago.
