A spectacular pair of small French solid wood frames trimmed out in elaborately crafted more bronze appliqué and aperture mat, and they still house the original intaglio prints in a sepia tone. Charming as they are, or to use for your own favorite family photos. These are wall frames, mounted on back with a hanging loop. They measure 7.5" x 6.5" and are 1" thick, rather heavy. The aperture shows a 3.25" diameter, and both cover glass panels are original and intact in full. The backs are even still sealed on this pair of Empire frames. We do believe these are 1st Empire and so date earliest 1800s. The inclusion of the prints popular from reign of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette and the very heavy weight of the old forest growth wood lend to the earlier dates. At latest, they might be from the revival era known as Second Empire, the reign of Louis Napoleon, c.1850-70, but I do think these are from Napoleon Bonaparte's era, instead. A superb pair. Look at the fine work on those bronze appliqués, they are of finest quality, tightly chiseled and cast without flaw. These are the type of fames I love best for my own family photo and these are very tempting to pull from inventory into my own displays, so don't leave them with me too long or I'll fill them and hang. BTW, these are fabulous for doll house collectors, for their Bru doll settings, rooms. Very good to excellent condition throughout, and remember you are buying the pair of 2 matching frames. The prints carry not much value, though they help us to date the set of frames. The frames and their opulently crafted more bronze mounts are museum pieces and are each in excellent undamaged condition. Cover glass in each is original and undamaged. Sealed backings tell us they've never been opened. You may wish to replace the old print with your family photo, and it will be simple to do so by opening the backings. Measurements noted on the photos and above. Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time! Return Policy: We always honor a 3-day return on our items, and guarantee them to be as described. Money back, less shipping costs, which are not refundable, so ask questions if necessary. We're easy to deal with. Shipping and Handling Policy: You are very important! Our fine inventory is very important. And your ranking of our performance is also very important! We wish to keep our 4.9 - 5 star ratings in all categories. Customer satisfaction is paramount with us, so if you're thinking we have not deserved your highest marks, please contact us and allow us to be sure your concerns are completely satisfied before you rank us. We aim for 5-star transactions every day, and depend upon you to tell us directly if we have not yet met that standard for your transaction. Thank you! We most often use USPS for our shipping needs but will be happy to ship by another carrier if you prefer. We charge only actual postage & insurance, never a handling fee and never for packaging materials. Ebay is now requiring that our clients rank us on "shipping". The shipping price, speed and handling are actually under the sole control of the delivering postal agency, not Antiques & Uncommon Treasure so please remember that and leave us high DSR rankings. As always, please also feel free to contact us if you have any problems or concerns, we'll do what we can to ensure a happy and mutually enjoyable transaction. Insurance has been eliminated as an option by ebay, forcing us sellers to either ship your items without insurance or assume that expense also. We always insure our items BUT, more importantly, pack them extremely well knowing that most are not replaceable. Again, damage in transit, while rare in our experience, is due to the postal agency handling and not caused by Antiques & Uncommon Treasure. Please remember that when leaving DSR ratings. Thanks! Our shipping days are Tuesday and Friday, paid items will be shipped on the first shipping day after payment is received (except when special circumstances exist). We prefer to use USPS whenever possible, and require all packages to be insured. If you prefer another method of shipment, please mention it. We charge only actual expense of shipment/insurance, except in the case of larger items which must have special wood crates built. Wood crate charge, when applicable, is a flat $35.00 in addition to actual postage & insurance charges. Other Information: 8.75% sales tax applicable as of April 1st, 2009 for shipments & sales within the state of California, no exceptions. If you are within CA and are a dealer buying for resale, you must provide us your active resale certificate # and acknowledgment of intent to resell or we will have to collect sales tax. No exceptions. Auction Payment Methods: Paypal: E-Check, Visa, Mastercard, etc..
