This exceptional hand made picture frame was done between the mid 1900's and mid 1920's here in America. During this time many crafts were taught in the schools, one of them being that of Pyrographics, the art of wood burning. In this process designs were drawn out on the wood object to be decorated, and then with special tools the design was burned into the wood and then stain was applied to the areas where contrast was needed to create the desired effect. Finally a lacquer or varnish finished was applied in several layers with sanding between coats to create a nice smooth finish. This particular frame has a lot of beautiful details with birds, a dragonfly, bands of pussywillows (I'm guessing), and an idyllic lake scene at the bottom; it also has it's original wood back and brass stays. It measures 11 1/2" in height by 7 1/2" in width and the inner frame is 5" by 2 1/2", and as you can see from the photographs, it is in pristine condition.
