FOSTER BROTHERS BRASS OVAL
These little Foster Brothers frames are so beautifully constructed. This one is brass, and the maker is identified on the back by the brass hanging hook. The frame was made to hold a reproduction silhouette of George Washington, and its profile recalls early 19th Century miniature frames. Gold-colored fabric covers the cardboard backing, which is kept in place by pins.
Overall size 4"W x 4 1/2"H
Rabbet size about 3 1/2"W x 4"H.
Oval sight size 2"W x 2 1/2"H
Condition: very good; the original brass pins have been replaced by silver pins.
