This is a very pretty antique or vintage Italian micromosaic floral picture frame.
I am uncertain as to exactly how old it is, but it definitely has very good age.
It is stamped on the back ITALY.
Overall, it measures 3 3/8 inches wide by 4 1/2 inches tall (8.6 cm x 11.4 cm). It will hold a picture measuring 2 1/2 inches wide by 3 5/8 inches tall (6.3 cm x 9.2 cm). The molding width measures 1/2 inch (1.3 cm).
As you can see in the close-up photos, the frame has very fine detail. The micromosaic glass tiles are placed in the frame by hand.
One of the pieces was probably replaced in the very top left corner, where there is a tiny white fragment. There may be a missing piece on the bottom, right in the center. It’s probably missing a few other tiny pieces. The metal going around the sight edge has mostly tarnished, except for a few areas on the top and bottom. There are remnants of some type of tape on the back of the frame.
Overall, it’s a lovely little frame.
It has its original piece of glass, and what may be its original photo.
It weighs 3 1/2 ounces (100 g).
It has what I always look for in frames, that wonderful old world look!
