Unusual late 19th century Antique convertible [Horizontal or Vertical] brass loops picture frame. Measures approximately 8 3/4" x 10 3/4" overall; glass/photo area approximately 4 3/8" x 6 3/4". Originally held a Cabinet Card photograph. Very unusual mechanism on the back--you swivel [gently!] the easel to convert the frame from horizontal to vertical as desired. A variation on most ring pattern frames, this wonderful looped design with applied stamped scrolls in corners is probably German ---marked DRGM frames have a similar convertible mechanism. Simply slide your photo behind the glass. Minor dings, etc. commensurate with age and use, since this frame is 110+ years old. A FIND for the Antique frame collector and most desirable for its horizontal format. A frame I have never had before.
