Wonderful Ivy Leaves and Vine Antique English Cast Brass Frame circa 1880s. Measures approximately 5 1/4" wide x 7" high; photo/glass area approximately 2 1/2" x 4". Originally held a CDV [Carte de Visite] photograph. Maintains its original convex [curved outward] glass--see last photo. Beautifully engraved leaves curve forward; easel back slides in--take care when removing back to replace with your photo as curved glass is delicate. Marked "MARION LONDON" above where easel "legs" divide. Thanks to very nice people from "across the pond" at the National Portrait Gallery in England, I was able to find out Marion was a company that made photographic materials, and frames, in the 19th century in London. In "The Year-Book of Photography and Photographic News for 1886" they list a "Marion's patent trellis photo stand, nickel or polished brass" for 2 portraits, so this frame is probably a bit earlier. A heavy [approx. 7.5 oz. inc. glass, etc.] for its size, quality frame. Lots of hand finishing make this a wonderful addition to any frame collection.
