Copper Frames - Part One

Victorian English Copper Chain Picture Frame (LEO Design)

While brass "chain link" photo frames were popular during the English Victorian period, copper chain frames were much less common. This one, made around 1890, is a handsome twist on the more plentiful brass option. It might make a nice Mother's Day gift on 10 May. Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
