Empress Elizabeth Frame

A combination of enamel guilloché in an antique white and rich navy blue, this frame is lavishly embellished with gold floral swags. The exterior molding of the outer rectangular frame measures 3.75 inches in width, and it stands a shade under 5 inches high. The interior frame, the oval, is formed of gold beading and is 2.5 by 3 inches. It stands on small bun-like feet and has a substantial easel that is also decorated.

This piece is elegant, lavish and typical of the 'Belle Epoque' period of the late 1800's. In those years royalty had a lifestyle that was so lavish that it would be difficult for someone of today to imagine it. The few in each country that had great wealth also lived lives of unimaginable opulence. They considered themselves royalty in all but name and they lived lives that rivaled those of the nobility. In the United States an example of the way they lived would be the "summer cottages" they built for themselves in Newport, Rhode Island; enormous mansions that dwarf everything about them and that were filled with works of art of every description. Hillwood, in Washington D.C the home of the late Marjorie Merriweather Post, is a perfect example of that sort of life. It is now a museum.

Our price: $250.00.
