Meticulously crafted 19th century micro mosaic frame with original photograph - Top Quality and RARE
In my over 35 years selling really special antique pieces, I’ve rarely seen another as lovely as this one. I am reluctantly selling it now out of my private, personal collection.
Finely rendered; gorgeous style, detail and workmanship
Masterful workmanship was required to create this masterpiece as the individual tesserae is extremely tiny and placed very tightly which is an indication of its age and quality.
Colorful flowers adorn the top and bottom sections of the oval while triangular designs embellish the sides
Inside this remarkable treasure is an original tintype photo of two 19th century women in all their finery; glass covers the photo
The frame can stand on a pull-out leg or can be hung on the wall from the rounded part of the leg at top
Excellent antique condition with only minor wear commensurate with age and use
Frame measures 3 5/8 inches (9.2 cm) high X 3 inches (7.6 cm); space for photo: 2.75 inches (7 cm) x 2 inches (5.1 cm)
This extraordinary showpiece looks wonderful as part of a grouping or on its own.
Displayed in your home, It will add grace and charm to any room.
