A vintage, possibly antique, Italian made photograph or picture frame, with miniature of a female figure inserted, the back of the miniature (underneath the backing) being inscribed Lady Jane Ellenborough. We have been unable to discover the composition of the miniature.
The frame measures just under 5.75in by about 4.875in and is comprised of wood veneered with bone or similar substance and, possibly, an agate veneer banding around the edge. The oval central aperture is surrounded with floral embossed brass. The back of the frame has a hook for wall hanging. The oval visible painting measures just under 3.25in by 2.5in.
Exact age unknown but believed to date from the earlier part of last century, of possibly before. The frame is structurally sound although there are a few minor splits in the veneer, commensurate with age and use. Stand not included.
