WWI German Army Photo in Handmade Folk Art Frame

Terrific WWI photograph of German soldiers at "Skat Club Hummel Montauban 1914-1915". The wooden frame is wonderfully hand painted with four different panels. The two sides have soldiers in full dress. The bottom panel is a fairly detailed village scene. The top has a banner that reads: 1914 Errinnerungan Montauban 1915. There is a paper label on the back that reads: Verdun-Meuse Offensive October 1918 - Hun Soldiers.

This appears to be a photo of German soldiers in 1915 that was captured in the Verdun Offensive in 1918. The derogatory term of Hun for the Germans indicates this was probably captured by French soldiers. The frame measures about 9" x 11".
