Photo Medallion (Archive Image #3287B)

6″ celluloid over tin button (“medallion”) produced by the Columbia Medallion Co in the early-1900s. This medallion was intentionally darkened by Columbia in order to hide the baby’s father who was crouched down to the left. A second photo in our collection clearly showing the father can be viewed [ here ].
