This gorgeous old French repoussé frame contains an old albumen print photograph of a man and woman, finely if sombrely dressed in clothing very much of the time.
The wooden back of the frame is held in place with bendable metal "lugs" which make it a simple procedure to change the image or mount.
Repoussé is a technique used to work on the reverse of the metal to form a raised design on the front.
The condition is very good for the age with the exception of the photograph mount which has a tear and a watermark type stain. This is easy to replace or cover. We like to sell our items in as original condition as possible and leave it to the buyer to make any changes as they prefer. The frame is slightly out of shape on the inside edge but we are nit picking here as it's important to give an accurate description. All in all a very beautiful old item.
Please see the photographs for clarification.
