An extraordinary antique brass picture frame with a beautiful, very ornate floral design.
The frame features iris blossoms and foliage forming the frame around an oval opening.
The flowers and foliage form a curling lattice of foliage and iris.
The design has high relief with great detail, it has the graceful flow found only in Art Nouveau.
The bottom of the frame is squared off, the top comes to a soft point with and iris blossom at the top.
The glass is held in place by pivoting metal strips screwed into the back of the frame.
The frame is quite heavy being solid brass.
The frame measures 8.5" across the bottom by 13.5" tall, it has a stand that pivots out to hold the frame upright. The photo opening is approximately 7" by 5".
Excellent condition, no damage and minimal wear, I have not cleaned the frame in any way.
I could not find any marks or maker.
Perfect for your very special photo, this would make a fabulous wedding gift.
A truly outstanding antique Art Nouveau picture frame c1880-1900.
