Antique Brass Frame maintains its original Dore (Gold-plated) finish and -- amazingly -- its original hand blown beveled glass. Measures approximately 6" X 9 1/4" tall; photo/glass area approximately 4 1/4" X 6 1/2". Dates circa 1870s-1880s and originally held a cabinet card. The frame is solid brass with an engraved design on the half-round moulding with thick solid brass wires used in the centers of each side as a design element. Construction is similar to English frames of the same period. The feet splay out slightly and the back has its original green silk. The beveled glass is thin so care should be taken when sliding it out to install your photo. A great period frame.
