Countdown to Mother's Day - I


Late Victorian English Brass Photo Frame with "Oxford Corners" (LEO Design)


We're counting-down the days to Mother's Day with an assortment of thoughtful gifts for the important women in our lives.  Order early and be sure to request gift boxing, if you'd like it.  We can also ship directly to your mother, possibly saving a few days in-transit.  (Please be sure to specify your desired greeting for an enclosure card to accompany your gift.)

Picture frames are always a great gift for mum.  No mother can have too many pictures of their children—or, better yet, their grandchildren.  This Victorian English brass photo frame, made around 1890, has what are called "Oxford Corners"—the criss-crossing joinery usually found on wooden frames.  Note the thoughtful chamfering along the horizontal and vertical members.  This frame will certainly take center stage with that perfect picture—no matter how many photos mum already has on-display.  Click on the photo above to learn more about this handsome photo frame.

More nice Mother's Day gifts tomorrow and in the days to come.
