French Brass Frame with original Beveled glass approximately 1/4" thick. The Brass holder has a spring mechanism -- you simply hold the glass from underneath, then GENTLY pull up with the bow to release the glass, and insert your photo (I used a magazine print). Heavy Beveled Glass measures approximately 3 1/2" X 5 3/8" and has lower left corner 1/4" flake/chip, plus a vertical scratch from use/age. It stands overall approximately 6 1/2" high. Stamped inside the brass mechanism are conjoined initials--possibly "JB" and "Bte SGDG PARIS". Underneath there were little ball feet, now gone--stands securely. Was originally priced $265.00. Circa 1890s.
