2 Antique Italian Inlaid Micro Mosaic Sorrento Ware Or English Tunbridge Frames:
These are two beautiful antique Italy Italian inlaid micro mosaic Sorrento Ware or English Tunbridge frames.They're both great quality and their detail is very intricate.The larger frame on the left measures 6 1/4 inches tall (15.9 cm) and is 4 7/8 inches wide (12.54 cm). It's picture size is 4 1/8 inches tall (10.5 cm) by 2 5/8 inches wide (6.8 cm). It has two clasps to keep glass in.The bottom right-hand corner has a small chip. On the left side where the inner section meets the inlaid section, there is some light separation and it may have been reglued at one point. (Or it may have been in the original making of it) Also, some of the inlaid section is missing tiny pieces. Lastly, in each of the corners, there is what looks like to be very light glue showing and one of the corners shows more than others.The second frame measures 4 5/8 inches tall (11.9 cm) by 3 1/2 inches wide (8.9 cm). It's picture size is 3 inches tall (7.6 cm) by 1 7/8 inches wide (4.8 cm).The inner and outer section of this frame are a burl wood, probably walnut.The top part of the inlaid section appears to be lightly damaged, about 1/4 inch (.6 cm), but it took real close-up viewing for me to notice it.I'm being very picky about their flaws, but overall they're both really beautiful!Together they weigh 5.3 ounces (153 g).
