On the front, the corners are decorated with metal ornaments in the form of stylized floral motifs, and in the middle is a fan-shaped ornament. Along the back of the album, a metal holder is attached, which allows for easier scrolling. The album has 16 sheets of thick cardboard, intended for 60 photos in three sizes. The passe-partouts are made of burgundy cardboard in oval and rectangular shape, with a gold line for photo data. The edges of the leaves are coated with gold paint.
