This very unusual celluloid picture frame from the 1920's is made to mimic tortoise-shell. Celluloid is a molded plastic, one of the first plastics, and it was invented in the 1880's. By 1930 it was no longer made. This oval frame is in exceptionally good condition with no warping, cracking, or other issues; the velvet rim, backing, and easel are very nice. Even the ribbon brace is fine. The original glass is included as well. It sits very prettily on a shelf or cabinet. A Victorian cabinet photo has been cut to fit this frame. The photo is 4 1/4" X 6." The frame itself is 7" tall and 5 1/2" wide.
