A truly fabulous sterling silver photograph frame, really elegant and by a top-notch silversmith, William Hutton and Sons.
The frame was clearly made to be retailed in India, and is lucky enough to have retained the silk behind the glass printed in gold for Hamilton & Co., Jewellers and Silversmiths, Calcutta and Simla. Hamilton & Co. is probably the best known and celebrated British silversmith operating in India (he was known as the Garrard of India). Hamilton and Co. had a Royal Warrant "By Appointment to His Majesty The King", King Edward VII.
There is a full English hallmark for Birmingham 1903, Edwardian in era, together with the makers mark for William Hutton.
The back of the frame is lucky enough to have survived including the folding easel stand (wear to velvet).
A very stylish and elegant frame in excellent condition and a good size measuring 9 1/2" x 7 1/4" with a glazed aperture measuring 7 7/8" x 5 3/4".
