Have nothing in your houses that you do not consider to be beautiful or useful. Rare French Antique Square Brass Frame Nap III 1850-Ormulu Bow. An exceptionally beautiful, rare square frame with a round photograph opening dating from the 1850s, the Napoleon III period, with a brass casing and a large ormolu bow on the top. The mat board around the opening for the photograph is in beige silk as is the interior round backing board while the flip-up dust cover is in burgundy paper. The square frame is 8 ½ inches by 8 ½ inches. With the bow, it is 9 ½ inches high. The round photograph opening is 5 ¾ inches in diameter and has an exquisite brass frame that matches the outside casing. This type of frame would have been custom made for an aristocratic customer and it is in overall excellent condition. The paper backing is a little wavy in spots but not torn.
The ribbon on the extensible back flap has been reinforced with a small piece of black tape, invisible when in place. The tiny brass clasps are well attached. It is a beautiful frame, unusually styled and found in manor houses and châteaux and looks very handsome in a period setting.
