Item details

A lovely quirky and stylish solid silver and oak photo frame. Quirky because it started life as a perpetual calendar, but has been repurposed into a photo frame, retaining the top winding mechanisms. It has a lovely broad silver frame.

It bears full English silver hallmarks with the anchor for Birmingham, the lion passant for quality and the letter y dating it to 1923.

The silversmith is W J Myatt & Co who made silver boxes, brushes, buttonhooks, calendars, candlesticks, dressing sets, frames, pepperettes, pincushions, shoe horns, spoons, thimbles, trays and vestas from 1902 to 1946.

It currently contains an antique postcard from the Edwardian era (1920), which has been cut to size to fit the frame. You could change it easily to incorporate your own photograph or painting. The back is completely made from wood, with a wooden hinged flap and little fasteners to hold it in place..

The glass appears to be original.

It measures approx. 7 1/4 inches by 5 inches and is 1 inch deep. It will stand up on its own, and appears not to have had a stand, even when it was a perpetual calendar! You may wish to lean it agains a wall or book shelf etc, just for safety purposes.

The aperture for the photograph is 4 3/4 inches by 2 3/4 inches.

There are some minor dings to the silver, commensurate with age (it is 90 years old) and the hallmarks are rubbed. The postcard has a couple of creases in it. The wooden top which bears the winding mechanisms is raised a little on one side, which can be seen in the final photograph of our listing. The winding mechanisms still turn, but are of course now defunct!
