This unusual 19th C. French frame is horizontal, with cast brass ornament of a bow atop the reeded design with tiny flowers and leaves. Excellent detail -- very crisp. Measures approximately 2 5/8" high X 3 1/4" wide; opening is approximately 2" high X 3" wide. All Original, from the gold-plating, slide-in back, easel and hanging ring. The slide-in back speaks of a French origin. Horizontal frames are hard to find, especially in miniature sizes. Good things DO come in small packages! Moire mat, which is removable, is behind 19th C. glass -- you can see "bubbles" -- marks of hand-blown glass. Dates circa 1890s. Simply slide the easel back to insert your photos, with or without the mat.
