This Period Victorian Cast Iron Rococo Frame retains most of its original Gold-Plated (Dore)Finish. Dates circa 1875 with a Cabinet Card [first introduced in the late 1860s] of a proper Victorian Lady (love the watch & slide chain she wears!) included. Frames of this Period held Cabinet Cards of a loved one, with an opening of approximately 4 1/4" X 6". Measures approximately 6 3/4" X 9 1/4" high overall. The frame maintains its original turn-buttons, screws, and swivel easel [that folds flat] on the back. Incised on lower left reverse is the number "7598" and lower right "8861". The asymmetrical design is typical of Rococo design, and this Frame is in wonderful condition for its age of 125+ years. Weighs over 1 pound, 3 ounces. PLEASE NOTE -- there are similar frames seen in solid brass that are REPRODUCTIONS--the originals are Cast Iron with Gold-Plating -- also the turn-buttons are different. My business is built on selling only Period frames, NO reproductions.
