Antique Small Silver & 300+ Paste Brilliant Picture Frame
Antique Small Paste Frame Circa. 1890 France
One of the most exquisite items! The craftsmanship is truly amazing.....so is the design! A rather small picture frame from France during the end of the 19th Century. The frame measures only 3 inches in height and 3 1/4 inches wide. Will take a photo approximately 2 1/2 inches high and 3 inches wide. We reconstructed the back of the frame due to its condition.
The frame has over 300 paste brilliants, all hand-set in silver! Only 4 pairs of these paste brilliants are of color, the rest are clear paste. The colored paste stones greatly resemble semi-precious colored stones.
Includes photo lens instead of glass (too heavy and thick)
This is a frame to treasure and should be a source of constant pleasure!
