Item details

This old piece is from the 1910's and was made by the Columbia Medallion Studios in Chicago. From what I have seen, their frames were brass. This particular one is the only silver-tone frame that I have seen. I don't know if it is antiqued silver over brass or if this particular piece was actual silver. The frame itself features a repeating floral pattern around the inner edge. The outer edge is a twisted ribbon and features a alternating feather pattern. There is one spot near the top that has cracked some. You don't notice it at first glance and you have to know where to look to see it. I did include a picture of it. It is cracked, but intact. The back of the frame simply pops right out and the celluloid photograph is attached to it. The back does have its easel still and there is also the original ring for hanging. The portrait is of a very distinguished looking lady of a certain age. The celluloid is in excellent shape with very minor scratching. This piece measures about 6 1/2" by 6 1/2". It is marked on the back of the frame.
