The Miniature Picture Frame Collection

These miniature frames are exact copies of frames made by Fabergé in the St. Petersburg workshop, the difference being that these are not made in precious metals or set with real gems...each frame has either a golden ribbon or a silken cord with which it can be hung on your Christmas tree. Additionally, two of the frames have stands attached so that they can be displayed year round in your collection. The third frame has its own easel on which it sits for display purposes. The existing pictures are members of the Royal Family of Russia but the frames open so the pictures can be replaced with your own. The work on these frames is so delicate and so highly detailed that one can only marvel at the workmanship. What strikes me as I study them is that these were made today; there are still people who can do this unbelievably exquisite work, and if this is the case, why then is there so little of it?

A. The Oval Frame: 24 karat gold plated with a translucent blue enamel guilloché ground.The face of the frame has gold ribs in alternate widths and the photograph is circled in Austrian crystals each individually set. The frame is crowned with a triple loop gold "ribbon" bow in which is set a single ruby crystal. It is important to mention that the back of the frame is finished as beautifully as the front in a striated sunburst design. Even the easel stand on which the frame rests is handsomely decorated.

Our price: $110.00.

Of interest: this frame was originally made in 1890 by Workmaster Johan Victor Aarne in St, Petersburg, Russia.

B. The Bell Shaped Frame: 24 karat gold plated with translucent enamel guilloché ground in pale green over a sunburst pattern. The oval inner frame is here set with Austrian crystals. The original was set with diamonds. Elsewhere on the frame, where originally it was set with pearls, there are amethyst crystals. The apex of the frame is a triple looped gold "ribbon" bow in which is set a single citrine crystal. It is important to mention that the back of the frame is finished as meticulously as the face of the frame, in a striated sunburst design. This frame also has an easel stand handsomely decorated

Our price: $110.00.

Of interest: the frame was originally made in 1900 by Workmaster Johan Victor Aarne in St. Petersburg, Russia.
