Antique Napoleon III Enamel Frame with beautifully executed enamel flowers and leaves in shades of blue, yellow, white, green, brown, and red. Measures approximately 6 5/8" X 8 1/2" tall, with the opening for the photo [measured from the front] approximately 3 1/4" X 5 1/4". Wood back with brass spring and latch. There is illegible writing in ink, on the top right of the wood back----you can make out "NY". It still has its original gilded stripe along the edge of the frame, and surrounding the opening. You can feel the raised enamel-work. There is no glass---I taped in a photo. Can also be used as a mat and framed into a gilded or wood frame. Truly a frame for the most discerning collector. In 45+ years I have had one other, with the same pattern, in different colors. Excellent condition--no cracks or chips, no crazing to the enamel, which is done on iron. Top quality.
