AWESOME antique Victorian mourning shadowbox Carved Bird Frame
This antique treasure holds a miniature ivory and paper fan, a sterling Nouveau hand mirror, a cut steel flower brooch. From what I can tell this is three antique frames in one, and is all original. The frame is one of the the most ornate frames I have ever seen. Hidden exotic birds and fish are concealed in the frame as well as ornate carvings. It might be laquer or hand painted, I cannot tell. The whole frame measures 17" x 14" x 4" deep. I would say this from from a very young woman, possible a child, because these pieces are so small. Obviously it comes with great Karma, because someone loved her so much as to put her treasures in this fablous very expensive frame. The frame in in very good condition less a few wear places on it.
