This beautiful Victorian Era picture frame, standing approximately 12 1/2" high and 9" wide is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws other than some minor age appropriate patina on the brass. I believe the original glass and mat to have been replaced. Please be sure to note wonderful 1 1/2" wide circle of fleur de lys around the frame, the 2 gorgons, one atop the other, on each side at the bottom and the fierce face with plumes on the top if its head, top front and center; note, too, the swivel stand on the back. The woman to whom this frame belonged told me it had first belonged to her mother, whose brother is pictured in the photo and who lived in France during La Belle Epoque. The frame will hold an oblong photo up to approximately 7 3/4" high by 5 3/4" wide.
What a wonderful addition to your antique frame collection: a fine example of late Victorian style and culture, this piece would certainly enhance and/or be the focal point of your contemporary, antique or vintage decor
