These charming pair of brass picture frames are English, circa 1890. They are unpolished and retain their original patina. The frames measure 3 1/4 inches down X 2 1/2 inches across. They can house a photo of approximately 2 1/4 X 2 1/2 inches. They have their original beveled glass inserts. One glass has a chip in the bottom left corner, which is barely visible . Wonderful finding a matched pair from this period with their original photos.
England, circa 1890
This wonderful double picture frame was purchased in Paris. it is from the Art Nouveau period of design, with hand twisted brass ornamentation, and brass silver plated flowers centering each frame. The composition is typically Nouveau and is well balanced, with artistic, free flowing elements.
Each frame can accommodate a 4X6 inch photo. The beveled glass inserts are in excellent condition and are original. Wonderful to find a double frame in superb condition. French, circa 1890.
