Vintage VICTORIAN ERA Gilt Brass Rectangular Photo Frame with Bow Top & Florals!
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1890 or so
ITEM: Here's a miniature photo frame/picture frame of what I believe was once gilt covered brass but is now an interesting "browned gilt" coloring! Featuring a top design of a bow and florals scattered all over the front, the frame currently holds a tinted sepia colored photo of a little girl that may or may not be original to the piece, The frame has a "pull down" panel at the back which pulls away from the mirror by holding onto the original easel to bring it down.
CONDITION: Very nice with all the antique patination that comes with old age.
METAL CONTENT: Brass?
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot.
SIZE: Frame measures 2-3/16" wide x 3-7/8" high. Actual image size is 1-11/16" x 2-3/4". Original glass is present.
FINAL COMMENTS: Adorable!
NOTE: Because of Ruby Lane's weird category system and the fact that they want antique to be priced $100 and over AND because I can't seem to get this picture frame in the Collectibles category, I have had to put a price of $100 on this piece. However, the price is firm at $65 should anyone wish to purchase.
