This lovely French Bronze Frame still has its original beaded mat, which sadly has suffered some losses-see photos. All original---gold-plated finish, easel, silk back (worn), ring for hanging, and convex glass. These frames originally held a painting on porcelain or ivory. The frame has a floral & striped pattern, with a cast (not stamped) bow ornament on top, and another leaf pattern around the center [convex] glass. It measures, overall, 5 5/8" X 6 5/8" high. The glass is 2 5/8" round, from the front, and the silk back measures 5" X 5". The original brass tabs are flexible if you want to [carefully] add your own picture or photo. Dates circa 1870.
