Original CDV. On the back is written, "Moorish Girls, Tangiers" [Morocco], also signed by the photographer,

A. Chouffly

From online:

"’These cartes-de-visite, nevertheless, are of considerable importance. They not only represent some of the finest ever North African figure studies, but they are remarkably early studies of Moroccan people. The photograph might equally reporesent the work of one of the first resident phoographs in that country. Studios do no seem to have opened until around 1880 in Tangier, though it is possible that Chouffly was attached to a hotel in that city in the 1860’s and 1870’s."

Dimensions are 4.25" x 2.5". Very good or better antique condition.
