Vintage GILT BRASS Metal Frame with Fleur de Lis & Duchess of Devonshire Print!
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: More than likely from England, here's a small frame that currently holds a print of (I believe) Georgiana, the Duchess of Devonshire (water edge damage). The motif at the top of of the frame is very much a Fleur de Lis so I am not sure why it would be on an English frame. Hmmmmmm...... Original back easel is present and it's easy to open and close the backing to insert your own photo or print.
CONDITION: Very nice for its age. Patina of old age is quite apparent and that's what makes this piece so delightful! The piece was very hard for me to open as the fit is quite tight. In shipping the frame, I will leave it open so that the new owner can insert their own print/photo.
METAL CONTENT: Gilt brass to the front; gilt tin to the back, I believe.
HALLMARKS: K & Co. within an "eye-shaped" lozenge
SIZE: Frame measures 3-7/16" high x 2-1/4" wide. Image opening is 1-1/2" wide x 2".
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready to be added to a collection!
