This is a large square frame of cream satin edged with braid. The satin is intricately embroidered with delightful ribbon work showing sprays of roses and other flowers held together with a large bow at the base. In the centre there is a small glass opening which currently holds an attractive image of two butterflies but this could be easily changed to a photograph of a loved one or an item of your choice. The frame itself has a sturdy green patterned backing and stand and clips to open the interior to replace or adjust the photo. The condition of the satin shows some staining and wear appropriate for age; the ribbon work is mainly in very good condition, being a little loose in a couple of spots but this could be repaired if desired. The ribbon that would have held the hinged stand for the frame has split but this again could be repaired or replaced, but the frame will stand comfortably without this as long as there is some support behind it. Such items are particularly desirable because of the skill and artistry of those who created them, and this would fit very nicely into a collection of ribbon work and embroidery. Frame measures 12 ins (30.5cm) x 11.5 ins (29.2cm). Aperture diameter is 3.5 ins (8.8cm). Weight 650 grams. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking to the USA would be $44.00 USD - with no tracking is cheaper. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us.
