B978 - Charming Antique French Ormolu Photo Frame, Bow Crest, Souvenir De Mon Ecole
This is a charming little antique French picture frame dating from the late 1800's, early 1900's. It is inscribed with the words 'Souvenir De Mon École' and there is a photo of a lady who was perhaps the teacher? This could be changed to one's own photo.
The frame would make the perfect château chic finishing touch, perhaps grouped with others on a side table.
The frame has a gorgeous ormolu bow and ribbon tail crest with flower garlands cascading to either side. It sits on two acanthus leaf scroll feet between which is the inscription.
On the back is a sturdy wire stand.
The gilding on the ormolu has mellowed over the years to timeworn perfection.
The frame measures 8 cm (3.25 inches) high x 5.5 cm (2.25 inches) wide.
A gorgeous little frame to add a château chic finishing touch and another divine antique French brocante find from La Belle Étoffe!
