Delightful antique Napoleon III era calling card, carte d'visite or 'CDV' sized 4 3/4" picture frame, a French wire-twist hand-made frame with cold or tole painted leaves and flowers. Isn't it as charming as can be. A very slight bit of loss to the paint on the leaves & flowers but most remains to add a splash of color wherever the frame is displayed. Great for the Austrian bronze colletors, Black Forest enthusiasts, or CdV antique picture frame buffs, OR, of course, just a delightful little frame to display the portrait of a family member or event, either historical or contemporary. Cover glass is intact, ready for your photo.
Very good to excellent ondition for age and type. As noted, there is some wear to the paint. The back also has all 4 tabs and the original easel stand. See pictures for measurements
