Here's a companion piece for the other Louis XVI style frame listed. Like the other one, this fine frame dates around 1900 and is made of gilt bronze and has the fancy ribbon at the top and the beadwork surround. Obviously made by the same company, the back stand also slides over the inner frame much like the cover of a tin box. The portrait which is original to the frame, is also an Opalotype type of photography where the image is actually printed onto a thin sheet of opaque white translucent glass. This is a very time consuming process and more costly that printing on paper, therefore it was used only for the more affluent of society. In beautiful condition, the frame stands 4 3/4" high by 3 1/2" wide, while the opening for the portrait is 3 3/4" by 3". Definitely for the collector of rarely found frames and photographs!
