Image of Disdéri: Nelly, lot of 3 CdV two rejected prints and one approved, 1861

A nice collection of 3 carte de visites. All made by the Disderi studio.
Two of them were rejected and therefore destroyed in the negative. One of this series became the approved one and is mounted on the official 'Disdéri' cardboard. Interesting to learn a lot about the making of a CdV.

Nelly was actress in the 'theatre des Valiétés' and 'théâtre de la Porte Saint-Martin'.

CdV's ca. 6,5 x 10,5 cm
Albumen prints in good condition, some slight discoloration.
