This antique twin picture frame was made to accommodate small photographs and features embossed Art Nouveau sterling silver decoration which overlays a shaped wooden backing. The sterling portion has 3 organically shaped enamel accents at the top finished in a striking teal color which transitions to purple near the base. The picture frame openings themselves have traditional Art Nouveau curvilinear shapes and are separated by elongated tear-drop forms. The frame terminates in stylized bracket feet and has a hinged easel support at the back.
The picture frame is in good condition and displays beautifully. The glass inserts are both present and free from scratches. As an antique, the piece shows appropriate signs of age consisting of slick nicks/dents and traces of tarnish to the sterling which is mentioned for accuracy. The enamel is intact and free from damage. The front of the frame is 3.125" tall and 4.375" as measured from the outermost parts of the bracket feet. The wood is .375" thick. The frame is marked "STERLING" at the lower left along with "GL1915" at the lower right. The picture frame weighs in at 2oz.
This charming antique sterling and enamel picture frame would be a wonderful addition to a collection of Art Nouveau pieces or works equally well as a stand alone decorative accent. A lovely and useful find!
