This is the complete collection of Cabinet Cards by UK artist Colin Batty. Colin starts with original, vintage cabinet cards and paints directly on the card. No computer. The cards range in age from the late 1800's to the early 1900s. Each picture is an original vintage picture, with all the wear and life of a 100 year old photograph. Where there is an original card available, it will say so, if the original isn't available, then various prints are. Since we do have a retail shop, and although we try to keep up, it's possible that an original card may have sold in the shop and the website wasn't updated. We apologize in advance for any confusion, we're trying but there are many.
Also, purchased images do NOT have a big water mark across them, that's just for the web. Duh. There is, however, a tiny signature watermark on the bottom of all prints. Some original paintings are signed on the reverse.
