This CDV scene card is usually known as an "album filler". (See our ancestorville article on CDV photographs here) The beautiful CDV depicts a painting of a young Victorian girl reading to a young child. This would have been placed in the album where there was no picture, and where highly collected much like baseball cards are today!

Found in NYS near Chenango, in Madison County NY. Alternative spellings of Welthy are Weltha and Welthea. A beautiful old piece, clearly signed as her own personal 19th century possession and one of a kind.

Size: 2.5 x 4 inches
Debra Clifford Ancestorville Genealogy     Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook.
