Fabulous antique French Napoleon III or Victorian era papier mache 9” tall picture frame PAIR with ornate metal wire pique and shimmering mother of pearl inlays! Likely the larger carte d’visite or calling card type photo frames, the backings on each with slits or separations at the bottom to allow for easy placement of your photos. Both with ornate white metal wire pique scrolls and tendrils along with iridescent mother of pearl accents and as elegantly Victorian as can be. Superb condition, age and materials considered, don’t miss them!
Very good to excellent condition. I really see no flaws to report, no missing inlays, no chips, cracks or repairs. Not even any noticeable crazing to the jet black lacquer finish. Surely original backs and glass two. See pictures for all measurements.
