Framed in a heavy, solid wood frame, with glass in front of each one, are four, adorable, old postcards. I purchased this as shown, and don't want to take apart the frame, but my experience tells me that these postcards are from right around 1900. The frame is newer....1980's-90's. This is a wonderful decorator piece for anywhere with antique, or Victorian decor. The frame has a couple of dings, but otherwise, very nice and solid, and ready to hang. I apologize for the high shipping, but the frame weighs a lot!
