Unusual American Oval Brass Frame with Green Cabochon Stones. Measures approximately 5 1/8" x 6 5/8" overall; photo/glass area approx. 3 1/2" x 4 3/4". The top of the easel bears the cypher of E.A. Bliss and Co. of Meriden CT. Founded in 1875 in No. Attleboro MA. they did souvenirs for the World's Fair in 1893. They were succeeded by the Napier-Bliss Co. in 1915. The frame dates circa 1900-10. The old glass has some small chips, partially visible from the front. The graceful easel ends in ball feet. [This frame had faceted amber colored stones, with one missing. Matching was an impossibility, so a kind [Antiques dealer] friend offered these stones and re-set them perfectly. I think they look better than the originals!] Weighs approx. 7.5 oz. inc. glass, etc. More unusual than the common "jewelled" frame; marked with an American company name.
