Wonderful antique bronze desktop Picture/Photo Frame with Mirror. Made by August Klein (1824 - 1890) in Wien, Austria - signed reverse, on easel, dated to late 19th century. The frame closed as a locket, lid opening reveal the mirror and picture frame. The gilt bronze displays elaborate floral engraving embedded with turquoise beads and crystals ruby jewels. Very decorative, more a piece of an art than a simple frame.

Layaway is welcome.
