New to My Collection: A Cornucopia of Cartes de Visite

An unusual image of a cornucopia, the symbol of abundance and nourishment, which is used here to celebrate friendship. From the mouth of this horn of plenty spills a number of Civil War era portraits of men and women interspaced with leaves, flowers and grapes. Quite unique!

The full image is available on my Flickr Photostream:
