This is an unusual little frame in that it is made to stand on its corner as well as on its side, so it could be displayed in either a square or a diamond-shaped format. White metal cast in a solid pattern of encrusted ovals, dots, and curlicues, typical of the late 19th century taste for dense ornamentation, and reminiscent of flatware patterns of the era. The backing is tin with a slot for insertion of the image and retains what appears to be its original very thin glass. The support is a brass wire. The photo in the frame is probably original to it, as she wears an 1890's costume of fur trimmed jacket with high collar and gigot sleeves, frilled bodice, and a tiny hat perched on the very top of the head.
Dimensions: 3.25" square, glass and photo are 2.5" square.
Condition: Good. Some of the gold paint is worn through in places but all the molded decoration is intact. Glass is perfect and appears to be original. The photo has good tonality and is not faded or discolored.
