Hi, all. This might be a little early but I wanted to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday before the usual Xmas rush kicks in. I've enjoyed everyone's posts and look forward to seeing more great things in 2023.
In the picture is a small 1/4-plate Mignon Bicyclists’ Camera by the American Optical Company; c.1886. It's the only example I am aware of.
Shown with the camera are a selection from my wife's large collection of hand-painted and carved Russian trees and Santas (collected over the past 30 years).
