I love these sterling silver frames, and always buy them--especially when they still have the original back as this one does. This frame measures 5 and 1/2 inches by 8 inches, and is in excellent condition. The cut out for the photo measures 3 and 1/2 by 5 inches. The frame has its original wood back and easel , and the photo inside is almost worth the price of he frame. Look at that hair; that hat, and the tiny, tiny waste? The frame is marked "sterling," so, even though I bought it in England, it must be American. The frame is circa 1905-1910.
