Late 19th century French Frame with Torch Motif cast ornament, retailed by and marked on easel "James McCreery & Co. New York". Measures approximately 5 3/4" X 8 3/4" overall to top of torch; photo area just slightly less than 5" X 7". McCreery was founded in 1869 and was an upscale dry goods store on Broadway & 11th Street in Manhattan. This is a heavy (weighs over one pound with glass, backing papers, etc) quality frame with its original hinge, ring for hanging, and easel. The glass is hand-blown--you can see a "bubble" in it. There is wear [or someone cleaned it improperly] on the Dore (gold-plated) finish, so the frame has a slightly pinkish cast to it--see photos. You raise the hinge and slide in your photo--better quality frames had hinged tops. With its original Dore finish completely intact, this frame would be priced $795.00. You can see on the back of the cast (rather than stamped) ornament top what the entire frame once looked like--covered in gold. The "box" that holds the photo and glass is 1/2" deep. Lovely, quality frame from France.
