This lovely matched pair of Scroll-saw (Fretwork/Filigree) Frames date to the Late 19th Century, and are possibly of American [or French] origin. Measures approximately 10 1/2" x 14 1/8" overall; approximately 3/8" thick. This type of work requires a steady hand--if you make a mistake you must start over. Beautiful designs of vines, acorns and scrolls are cut into the hardwood front--backs are softwood, probably pine. There is faded fabric that can be seen inside the designs--obviously original. Some minor breaks & tiny pieces missing--hard to see--commensurate with age. Tiny screws hold the wood backs on--the mirrors were added. Small rings are on each frame for hanging. It is unusual to find matched pairs of frames that survive together after 125+ years. Priced for the PAIR.
