Rare Ormolu & Embroidery Photo Picture Frame with Original Glass

This rare & wonderful picture frame is one the most exquisite of all vanity items within my shop.

You would seldom see a further example, for these vintage items are exceptionally scarce.

Have you seen one before?

Please allow me (before describing) that the photo is of my late Grandmother who I never met and as such, the photograph is strictly not for sale, but what an enchanting a Lady she looks, and as same as ANY Loved One will also, if so held within such a beautiful picture frame...

...I have pictured this Edwardian photograph of my Grandmother, with this item, as a back-drop and for display purposes only. The photograph is strictly not for sale

The condition of this piece is remarkable. Both sheets of the original glass are still retained and there is no tarnish to the filigree ormolu stand & frame. The original embroidered decorative element has not colour faded and is protected by its original transparent covering. It is a fabulous frame for your collection or indeed as a special gift.

Frustratingly, there are no maker marks that I am able to locate and so I can give no further provenance to this piece, however its vintage is as unquestionable, as so is its appeal.

I have no further matched items to this delightful picture photo frame and so it has not been a component part of any my vanity sets, as are listed here in my shop, however its floral design and ormolu frame would make an attractive addition to most, if not all.

The very fact that this item has no other component items, such as a tray, candle stick holders or brushes & hand mirror for example, would strongly suggest that it is a stand alone piece. As so too it is, and within any interior displaying environment.

Total height with glass: 6.25 inches Glass sheets: 4 x 3.5 inches Frame stand: 6.25 x 1.75 x 1 inches high. Tallest frame post: 4.5 inches The postage weight is minimal at just: 1k 400gms
