C1820 RARE Pair Early American Brass Miniature Silhouette Folk Portrait Frames
May 24, 2020
What a beautiful pair of early American miniature frames. These date to the first quarter of the 19th century and are composed of a pressed brass molding attached to a wood form backing. These early miniatures are difficult to find in nice condition and this pair is quite unusual for the light moss green tint surrounding the site edge…… Never seen that before and its quite attractive. The frames have their original surface, nice wavy glass, shingle backing and a thin string hanger (was likely originally tin hanger). The pair measures 3 1/8 x 3 1/2 with a 2 3/8 x 2 7/8 rabbet. Fantastic rare, early American pair of frames for silhouettes or miniatures. Thanks from Phoenix Antique Frames.
