An attractive Japanese Meiji period silver 5-1/2" x 3-1/2" picture frame c1880-1900. This frame has a bamboo pattern with a patterned ground; it has a textured snakeskin styled backing that originally had a support foot for standing up the frame (now missing and replaced with a wire and eyelets). The frame is mounted with copper round-head nails; it retains the original patterned backing paper and glass window. It is unmarked, as was often the case with older Japanese silver, but tests as very high grade silver. This item is in excellent original condition with no chips, cracks, dents, corrosion, losses, damage or repairs other than the loss of the foot rest and slight bending at the lower right hand corner (very minor). All items are thoroughly and conservatively graded and all condition issues are noted; all items are vintage or antique and may have slight signs of gentle use.
