Antique Paper Mache, Cardboard Picture Frame with Raised Embossed Roses

This is such a charming antique picture frame, which is done in pressed cardboard/paper Mache; as you can see it features various shades of pink roses/greenery. Please note, there isn’t glass covering the picture (this type of frame usually came without glass, due to the delicate nature of the paper Mache/cardboard).

I added the vintage paper photo shown with it, which is adorable, but it can be removed and your own photo or cabinet card inserted.

The back of the frame has the original small metal ring for hanging; the cardboard easel stand is missing, although you could easily make one yourself. The oval hole you see on the back would have held the bottom half of the easel. There is a 4 5/8” wide opening to insert a photo, although it’s now wider due to tears on each side of the original opening. This doesn’t affect the front in the least; it will just allow you to insert a larger photo.

Except what’s noted above, the overall condition is very good, with minor wear and some dark lines at the top (see photo). Considering it is over 100 years old, it’s in remarkable condition. All in all, it’s a very lovely antique picture frame.

The frame measures approx. 7” wide & 9 ½” long; the oval picture slot will hold a 4 X 5” picture.

This is a lovely & very pretty antique frame, which will enhance your décor.
