Lovely antique French style Victorian to Edwardian era Royal Mfg. Co. Marked 8 5/8” tall vertical formal picture frame with ornate reticulated foliage, bow & ribboned top, unique gordian knot festooned bordering and original easel stand! Just the type we love clustering on a mantel or tabletop to show off our own family and friends, and I'm sure you'll find it perfect in your own grouping. We have a few more of this type of frame, in case you do wish to put together a group - just ask. This one marked on the easel "Royal Mfg. Co.", I've not been able to find much on it but have seen one claim that it is an American (Philadelphia) maker or retailer dating to the 1890s. We’re also working a photographing and listing several wonderful old French Napoleon III to Belle Epoque era frames so, be sure to browse some while you’re with us. Thanks!
Very good condition. The glass is likely a replacement. It appears to be gilded bronze, you can see the coppery hue on the raised decoration. The rear top folds open pocket style for photo/portrait placement. Visible wear to the gilded finish but as stunning as can be! See pictures for measurements.
