This brass tabletop picture frame dates from the early twentieth century. It is probably from Italy, although it is not marked. The front of the frame is mosaic work made of Venetian glass tiles inlaid to form a pretty floral design. The raised flowers are forget-me-nots, a favorite flower of the era. The horse-shoe shape is also a favorite theme of the era. This frame measures 2 7/8" X 3 1/4" tall and holds a 1 3/8" X 1 3/4" photo. There is a brass backing over the opening that holds the photo; it is held in with movable tabs. The original glass comes with the frame. The easel is original. The attachment has been soldered. There is no damage to this 75-100 year old frame. It is all original except for the repair.
