Ornate Antique Frame with Photo inside. Frame is made of wood with the Gold Gilt over it, a little chipping to some of the gilt but overall very good shape! I turned the photo over to find a piece of tape attached at the top that read “Edw Horst and Katerina Kahler Horst – Sadies Parents”
Im always checking framed old photos hanging on walls in shops, even have store clerks opening up the backs to check for writing on the backside of the photos, and up to this point have turned up empty handed everywhere I have gone. So I was so excited to find info on the outside attached to the back of this photo!This appears to be original, it didnt even look like it had been opened on the backside before. Except for the old paper that once covered the back is gone. Frame measures 15 1/2 x 17 1/2″. Photo itself is an 8 x 10.
I took the photo out of the frame so you can see a light ring over the heads of the couple, this is where the photo was exposed to the light and the rest was hidden under the matte inside so the other section was protected.
