Early Century Ornate National Brass and Iron Works Frame

This lovely frame came from the National Brass and Iron Works of Reading Pa. Founded in 1891, it was in production until 1911. This frame is marked NB & IW and has the number 2186. The size is 17 inches long, 12 inches wide. The picture opening is 6 3/4" wide X 8 inches long. The picture and glass is secured with 4 screw type holders. 2 hanging brass loops for wall mount. This is a heavy piece, weighing about 3 1/2 pounds. Forged to the highest standards and meant to last. The metal has a wonderful aged patina- a brass and iron combination. I believe the satin glass is not original, but the religious picture, complete with gilt accents fits well. Please see the other similar frame I have listed- this frame works well alone or in pairs- I will gladly combine for shipping purposes. Carefully packed and shipped. Please email questions.
