French Brass Art Nouveau Picture Frame with Flowers and Leaves, and "Whiplash" type Vines. Measures approximately 5 1/2" x 6 1/4" overall; photo/glass area approx. 3 3/8" round. Whiplash design from the Art Nouveau period, but the flowers are symmetrical and reminiscent of the designs from the Art Deco period, found on larger French hanging frames. Dates circa 1915-20. Original finish, with traces of some lacquer on the back. The back unscrews at the top so you can replace the sepia photo with your own. Elaborate high relief flowers and leaves with engraved designs make this a special frame. Weighs over half a pound with glass, etc. A truly charming frame.
