Circa 1900

9½″ wide by 9″ high

This is a stunning double oval figural sterling picture frame from the turn of the last century. It measures 9½″ tall by 9″ wide. Each of the oval frames is 3″ wide by 5½″ high. The frame has overall etchings of swirls around the outer surface and large two dragons with curled tails crawling up the sides in high relief. They seem to be attacking an angel with outstretched wings and blowing a horn at the top of the frame. Between the dragons and the angel is much foliage and Gothic style flourishes. It is very grand and ornate. The oval frames have purple silk inside the glass and the backs of the picture openings and the easels are covered in purple velvet. There are hallmarks on the side as are shown in my pictures.

The condition is very good. One glass has a tiny chip at the top left that I didn't even notice until now. There is a ring at the top for hanging. This frame is part of a large estate I will be listing over the next year. The pieces are from a dear friend of mine who has just retired from her second career as a fine antique jewelry dealer. Her first career was in early television as a writer and producer.

While her items are costly they are also the most beautiful and of finest quality of each genre. This is for an advanced picture frame collector who will go the extra mile for a spectacular piece.
