Pair French miniature picture photo frames with cherubs and rose garlands artist signed
Lovely pair of French picture frames in pewter or white metal with cherubs and garlands of roses in high relief. Easel back, the easel removes easily to pop out the photos should you decide to change them. Engraved on the medallion at the top of each frame is Souvenir of Mon Boule (My Ball). Each frame is signed in the right hand corner, Balmy or Bafromy in script. Each frame holds a round picture of what likely are the wedding photos of a very affluent nineteenth century man and woman. I believe these are the original pictures that have always been in the frames. The woman is wearing very expensive accoutrements and jewelry, including a shawl held in place by a pearl shawl pin, a gold locket on a ribbon around her neck, and an elaborate bow made of ribbon, tacked with a diamond pin. The easels are engraved Brevet (Patented) S.G.D.G., and the maker's initials, HS, with his mark in between the letters. The frames stand 4" tall on their easels, and measure 3" in width. The visible picture dimension is 1 1/2" in diameter. Both are in excellent condition with no damage or losses. Beautiful pair of antique French miniature frames. Circa 1890.
