Colonial Sterling Silver Frame Peru Peruvian 11x13.75

Gorgeous hand hammered repousse silver frame. This is from Peru in the colonial style and dates to the late 19th or early 20th century. The silver is hammered from a thin sheet and hand cut to fit the wooden backing. The wood is Andean hardwood possibly mahogany. The silver has three marks on the bottom right (see photo) but they are mostly worn off. I can vaguely make out 925. The frame measures about 11 x 13-3/4 inches and fits a 7 x 9 inch image. The frame is missing the stand on the back and has a label that reads: Por Una Venezuela Libre y de los Venezolanos Pan Tierra Trabajo translated as: For a Free Venezuela and Venezuelans - Whole Earth Work. Excellent condition, with one minor piece of silver missing top left.
