Art Deco Bevelled Glass Photo Frame by Dilecta


Art Deco Bevelled Glass Photo Frame by Dilecta. Fantastic piece with fine detailing and silver plated. The glass has a fine bevel to the elliptical perimeter, and the glass can swivel between the side supports, and is “cradled” in curved brackets to side points; the photo goes to the rear and trimmed to the glass shape, and is also held in place by the brackets. It would be possible to add a thin mirror to the rear in lieu of a photo, turning it into a dressing table make-up mirror. To the lower front is a dished area to take pins or rings, etc., and edges are detailed in the typical French “Fruit and Flowers” decoration. Marked to the base is “OBFEVREBIE DILECTA”, “MADE IN FRANCE”, and below, “DEPOSE”, (French for “Made in France”), Dilecta, being a top French design Manufacturer. Condition is very good for age with a uniform patina, with general fine silver loss which adds to the age character. No damage, no repairs or losses to mention. Dimensions are approx..: 27cm high x 27cm wide x 10cm deep; glass ellipse is 13cm wide x 19.7cm high. France Circa 1930.
