Pyrography is the art of decorating wood or other materials with burn marks resulting from the controlled application of a heated object such as a poker; also known as pokerwork or wood burning. The term means "writing with fire", from the Greek pur (fire) and graphos (writing).
This wonderful arts and crafts era oval picture frame, circa 1900-1915, is decorated with dogwood blossoms and leaves. The frame measures 9 3/4" in height and 7 5/8" across; the oval opening is 5 3/8" in height and 3 1/2" across. The reverse still has the original fibre photo pocket and wire stand. The photo of the dapper Victorian gentleman, thou rather worn, will be included, until you can replace it with your favorite family photo. There are no cracks or repairs to this great frame.
