Item details

This pretty little antique wooden frame is very old and worn, but very beautiful. It has a lovely Black Forest feel with its' bold hand carved outline and would fit a small photo or postcard in the slot at the back.

Height: 6½" (16.5cm)
Width: 5¼" (13cm)
Depth: a little over ¾" (2.2cm)

Inside the carved wooden frame is the original French photographer's backing card which once sat behind an image inside. Printed on the reverse of this in gorgeous curly letters is "E. Dumesnil-Marguin" and "Agrandissements en Tous Genres" or "All Types of Enlargements"

There is an old and rusted turning pin on the back to prevent the framed image from falling out of the slot, this pin has a thin knotted leather cord attached to it.

Beneath this is the remains of the original supporting stand. I believe this old frame was designed to sit on a surface rather than be wall mounted as it would not be able to sit flush with a wall. This also explains how the lower edges, or feet of the frame have lost a little of their moulding. Please open the photos in "zoom" mode to see this more clearly. There is also a crack running through the lower frame edge at approximately 7 o'clock but the frame is still sturdy.

There is no glass in the frame and, apart from the points noted above, it is in good, antique condition.

FAQs

Etsy policy allows any items over twenty years old to be sold as vintage: this very broad policy includes items made as recently as the 1990's. Whilst it is extremely difficult to be completely accurate about dates, particularly in France where many household styles remained unchanged for decades, I research my items carefully and always endeavour to provide a good estimate of their age wherever possible. Having spent the majority of my life rummaging in junk shops, whilst I cannot claim to be an expert I certainly have a passion for the often superior quality and durability of old over modern, cheaper manufacturing materials. Old has texture, tarnish and history worn into its skin, a story waiting to be told.

Absolutely! As long as the total weight does not exceed 2kg (just over 4lb) I am happy to combine your purchases into one package, as long as they can be packed together safely. It is however, sometimes more economical to send items in multiple packages because of the weight restrictions. Packages over 2kg can only be sent via Colissimo: it is a more expensive service, but it is quicker and there is greater flexibility in weight allowance (for example, the price is the same between 2kg and 5kg) plus it includes tracking and insurance. Just contact me via Etsy's messaging system and I will work out an estimate for you, or I can simply refund the difference after purchase. Let me know what's best for you.

I am happy to gift-wrap items for you, just let me know in the comments section at checkout. Unless you specifically request otherwise, I use recycled boxes and packing materials as much as possible. Please be assured that this does not impair performance or strength and that your purchase will be professionally and securely packaged.
