A very nice picture frame which folds into a box. This design is for protection whilst travelling and can sometimes be seen in small travelling clocks of a similar era.
The photograph itself, is on a porcelain oval. Which sits on a deep burgundy velvet background.
The subject of the photograph is a lady in typical dress for the time. How lovely that someone didn’t want to be parted from her image even whilst travelling.
The outside of the box is leather with an embossed gold design around the border.
The box closure is a push button clasp which is good and strong and works as it should.
The hinges are good and strong. The overall condition is very good, the leather having a lovely patina.
Please see the photographs for clarification.
