Believed to be a mid to late 1800`s Victorian memorial type shadow box and picture frame combination beautifully decorated inside and outside in gold finishes. A relatively small 11 1/4 x 8 3/4 in.
, but highly decorated and devoted to displaying its contents. The single piece thin wood back cover is held in place by 2 small old wood screws.The inside of the box is decorated in very lustrous gold tone finishes or veneers, all in remarkable condition. The structure of the fame and attached rear box are sturdy and solid.
There is an old rusty eye hook at the top of the back for hanging. This area has numerous farms that have been in the same families for many generations. This piece may have come to this country from Europe many years back. Just don`t know the history. The "window" or viewing size of the box is 8 1/4 in.The innermost surface covered in black velvet measures 6 x 4 in.. The wood boards in the frame are 1 in.
The entire piece extends out from the wall 2 1/4 in. The back board was removed to clean the inside of the glass, otherwise the entire piece is as found. Would be great for displaying any small important family heirloom, photo, military medal or the like.
