ORnate ANtique Victorian Religious Folding Icon Frame
In victorian times, people would carry these portable frames with them to carry their loved ones photos. This one was for a traveling priest and would have held valuable icons inside each of the five frames. They are so detailed with columns and a crown at the top. I have never seen one like this, since most are fairly plain and made of brass. This is a silver color heavy metal and each one has its original hinged anchor on the back to hold in the board or backing of each icon. Each frame measures 4 1/2" x 2 3/4" and it extends to 13 3/4" long when fully open. A real treasure that has not been offered for sale before. Probably from the 30's. This was marked as sold but was purchased in error and now it has been relisted. I don't have two of these.. thanks for asking.
