I purchased an amazing thing over the weekend. It looks like a victorian era photo album, but inside are 264 of these amazing designs, all appearing to be done by hand or by some sort of antique contraption and all hand-colored. They range in size from 2-1/2" square to 5" square and are dated from 1902-1909. There was something called a "Wondergraph" that would have been able to create these, but it was only sold from 1906-1907, so I have no idea if this is what was used to create these. There is a name in the front cover of the book "Glenn H. Niles", who was an inventor of furnace parts in the early 20th century. Was this a hobby of his? I have no idea. I cannot find anything like them anywhere on the internet. I am in love with them but would love to know anything more about them and suggestions for what to do with them.
