B979 - Magnificent Antique French Heavy Brass Picture / Photo Frame, Bow, Ribbon, Swags
This is a magnificent antique French brass picture frame dating from the 1800's. It currently holds a photo of a lady but this could be changed to one's own photo.
The frame is very decorative. It is a very heavy and substantial piece, weighing over 1.5 kg. It is of excellent quality and is cast in wonderful detail. It has a beautiful bow and ribbon tail crest. From the knot of the bow glorious fringed and tasselled swags drape and fall to either side. The aperture for the photo is framed with heavy beading.
The frame stands on decorative feet and has a very sturdy stand. The brass has mellowed over the years to a lovely old gold hue. There is no glass.
The frame measures 32 cm (12.5 inches) high x 21 cm (8.25 inches) wide and is 18 cm (7 inches) deep when on it's stand.
The photo display area is 13.5 cm (5.3 inches) high x 9.5 cm (3.75 inches) wide.
A gorgeous frame to add a château chic finishing touch and another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe.
